In an effort to bring the project goals and activities closer to the general public, the DYNASAT consortium produced its first project video explaining the DYNASAT vision and objectives.
Nowadays, transmission traffic demands are increasing, the cost per GB is high, and a higher performance is needed. Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN) technology can help increase digital inclusion by fulfilling the coverage gap on land and by bringing connectivity to people in remote areas and those traveling by trains, ships, and planes. In addition, NTN technology is sustainable, efficient, and environmentally friendly.
The role of DYNASAT
DYNASAT will provide the necessary mechanisms and technologies that will boost the performance of the 5G NTN access infrastructure and support the growing traffic demand, through:
- An enhanced life cycle cost reduction and increased performance.
- The development of European research and technology ecosystems.
- Greater integration of NTN communications into 5G.
- Greater industrial relevance of research actions and output.
- A reduction of the coverage gap on land, sea, and in the air.
DYNASAT’s innovation potential can be seen on four different levels:
- BUSINESS – Enabling 5G NTN access to offer affordable service to more users will open a new market to the space industry.
- SERVICE – Increasing the service performance in terms of greater sustainable data rate and reduced latency will enable the offering of higher quality of service to targeted 5G end-users.
- ECOSYSTEM – Spinning in cellular technologies in NTN access will encourage technology vendors to invest in customized products for the space industry and fuel a new cycle of innovation in SatCom.
- STANDARDIZATION – Supporting standardization of NTN and DYNASAT technologies in 3GPP will provide a harmonized solution based on a 5G new radio air interface.
Leveraging direct access to new radio user equipment will contribute to improving digital inclusion by lowering equipment prices for operators and end-users.
To ensure that these challenging objectives of the project are met, DYNASAT has built a strong consortium with a wide range of skills and technical knowledge. The project consortium comprises six partners from four countries, including two higher education and research institutions, the largest European satellite manufacturer, and three SMEs.
