Innovative Technologies & Techniques for SatCom Beyond 5G

preparing the next generation of satellite networks beyond the 5G non-terrestrial networks standard.

Vision & Objectives

To maintain Europe’s leadership in the definition and development of 3GPP-defined network solutions, it is timely to advance significant innovation breakthrough in the current technologies, techniques, and architectures.

The EAGER project aims to pave the way for the use cases, technologies, and techniques that will constitute the heart of Europe’s 6G satellite communications. EAGER will build on and advance the existing innovations to prepare for next generation satellite networks, targeting highly efficient and deeply integrated satellite networks in beyond 5G and 6G cellular systems. EAGER’s key objectives are:

Roadmap

Starting from the updates of Rel. 17 and Rel. 18 Non-Terrestrial Network (NTN) specifications, EAGER will evaluate the performance/feasibility benchmark of the most promising scenarios and services beyond 5G satellite systems, and perform a technical gap analysis, also targeting those solutions partially or fully discarded within 3GPP.

Phase #1

Identify the most promising scenarios and services beyond 5G satellite systems

Phase #2

Carry out a review and gap analysis of the techniques and technologies for the identified services

Phase #3

Select the techniques and technologies for beyond 5G satellite systems based on the preliminarily evaluation

Phase #4

Develop an integrated software simulator covering all use cases and techniques in order to assess their performance

Phase #5

Define the technology roadmap to increase the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) for the techniques, technologies, and architectures previously assessed
