Space Mobile Network Concepts for Missions Beyond Low Earth Orbit

Abstract: The Space Mobile Network (SMN) is an architectural framework that will allow for quicker, more efficient and more easily available space communications services, providing user spacecraft with an experience similar to that of terrestrial mobile network users. While previous papers have described SMN concept using examples of users in low-Earth orbit, the framework can also be applied beyond the near-Earth environment. This paper details how SMN concepts such as user-initiated services, which …
