RESTART structural project S11 – ITA NTN will define future integrated terrestrial/non-terrestrial (T/NT) networks where flying network nodes, such as unmanned aerial vehicles, high-altitude platforms, Geostationary and non Geostationary satellites, integrate with terrestrial nodes to provide ubiquitous and resilient wireless connectivity to support:

  1. Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) in unserved or underserved areas, passengers on board of vessels or aircrafts, or for fast recovery in case of natural disasters;
  2. Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) for vehicular connectivity and autonomous driving;
  3. massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) to provide ubiquitous coverage in support of worldwide logistics chains, narrowband IoT services with massive access, and Telemetry, Tracking and Command for flying objects.

The integrated T/NT network will improve coverage, user experience, system capacity, service reliability and availability, environmental sustainability of next generation communication infrastructure, in many verticals like transport, public safety, media and entertainment, eHealth, energy, agriculture, finance, and automotive.

ITA NTN is parte of Spoke 2 – Integration of Networks and Services
