In this paper we propose the usage of Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA) in the Broadband Satellite Return Channel.Notably, SC-FDMA is able to improve the physical layer spectral efficiency with respect to single carrier systems, which has been used so far in the Return Channel Satellite (RCS) standards. However, it requires a strict synchronization and it is also sensitive to phase noise of local radio frequency oscillators. For this reason, we propose an effective pilot tone arrangement within the SC-FDMA frame, and a novel Joint Multi-User (JMU) estimation method for the SC-FDMA. As shown by numerical results, the proposed scheme manages to satisfy strict synchronization requirements and to guarantee a proper demodulation of the received signal.

Abstract

In this paper we propose the usage of Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA) in the Broadband Satellite Return Channel.Notably, SC-FDMA is able to improve the physical layer spectral efficiency with respect to single carrier systems, which has been used so far in the Return Channel Satellite (RCS) standards. However, it requires a strict synchronization and it is also sensitive to phase noise of local radio frequency oscillators. For this reason, we propose an effective pilot tone arrangement within the SC-FDMA frame, and a novel Joint Multi-User (JMU) estimation method for the SC-FDMA. As shown by numerical results, the proposed scheme manages to satisfy strict synchronization requirements and to guarantee a proper demodulation of the received signal.
