Abstract [en]

Herein, we study an underlay beamforming technique for the coexistence scenario of satellite and terrestrial networks with the satellite return link as primary and the terrestrial uplink as secondary. Since satellite terminals are unique in that they always point towards the geostationary satellite, interference received by the terrestrial Base Station (BS) is concentrated in a specific angular sector. The priori knowledge that all the geostationary satellite terminals are facing south for the European coverage can be used in designing a beamformer at the terrestrial BS. Based on this concept, we propose a receive beamformer at the BS to maximize the Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) towards the desired user and to mitigate the interference coming from the interfering satellite terminals. The performances of Minimum Variance Distortionless (MVDR) and Linear Constrained Minimum Variance (LCMV) beamformers are compared for our considered scenario. It is shown that LCMV beamformer is better suited in rejecting interference even in case of Direction of Arrival (DoA) uncertainty of interfering satellite terminals as long as DoA range of the interfering sector is known to the beamformer. Furthermore, it is noted that MVDR beamformer is suitable for a large number of interferers.
