A Roadmap to Future Space Connectivity. Satellite and Interplanetary Networks
A Roadmap to Future Space Connectivity. Satellite and Interplanetary Networks provides an overview of the latest advancements in space ICT.
The books opens with a description of future space networks and communications in terms of system and technology, and continues with a discussion on research on interplanetary networks.
The book examines hardware and software technologies for future space communication networks, taking into account extremely modern examples such as the design and implementation of the different layers of the network (including the physical one) via software, the extensive use of AI in the dynamic configuration of networks, new applications of radiolocation which are also used in the lunar environment, global monitoring through the so-called Internet of Remote Things, Cloud-RAN and quantum technologies applied in deep space, even in areas other than the Earth (for example on Mars).
In the book, the word 'Space' is used in a broader sense than the usual meaning of satellite communications aimed at broadcasting signals, thus paving the way for a new vision of space, called "Space 2.0", as an ecosystem within a global, ubiquitous and resilient offer of connectivity.
The book also includes applications such as: Internet of Space Things, Tactile Internet/Digital twins for Space and opens a discussion on future challenges, like those related to the concept of Sustainable Space.
The editors of the book will be present at the presentation:
- Fabrizio Granelli, Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento
- Marina Ruggieri, Department of Electronic Engineering, Tor Vergata University of Rome
- Claudio Sacchi, Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento
