Call For Papers
IET Communications covers the fundamental and generic research for a better understanding of communication technologies to harness the signals for better performing communication systems using various wired and/or wireless media. This Journal is particularly interested in research papers reporting novel solutions to the dominating problems of noise, interference, timing and errors for reduction systems deficiencies such as wasting scarce resources such as spectra, energy and bandwidth.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

    Coding and Communication Theory;
    Modulation and Signal Design;
    Wired, Wireless and Optical Communication;
    Communication System

Special Issue on Satellite-Space Communications and Antennas
Submission Date: 2017-03-06

Satellite and space communications is of paramount importance, both from a national as well as an international point of view. Satellites provide access to fixed and mobile services at the same cost factor for all users within the coverage area, they are a key element of the Internet backbone, and they constitute an essential element in disaster relief scenarios as well as in risk and crisis management for institutional, government and defence applications. Particularly interesting and challenging are problems related to power and spectrum efficiency, multi-beam scenarios, flexibility and adaptability for different propagation conditions, broadband requirements and regulatory implications, mobile services, operation at very low signal-to-noise ratios, fading and interference mitigation techniques, complexity and feasibility issues. However, as satellite systems are becoming more complex and their functions more interrelated, also crosslayer protocol and standardization problems have to be taken into account for future systems. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to: 1.Theory and Techniques -Propagation models and antenna technologies -Channel modelling and distortion countermeasures -Novel modulation, synchronization and coding techniques -Fading and interference mitigation methods -Free-space optical communications -OFDM and spread spectrum techniques -MIMO and diversity techniques -Onboard switching and processing -Radio resource management -Cross-layer design -Encapsulation and QoS issues 2.Systems and Applications -Next generation mobile and broadband systems -LEO and MEO constellations -Ad-hoc and wireless sensor networks -Hybrid terrestrial and satellite networks -Satellite communications and future Internet -Navigation and Earth observation via satellite -Systems for deep-space communications -Standardization and regulatory problems -Security aspects
