End-to-End single band connectivity with a single drone-emulated LEO satellite
This scenario is similar to Demonstration 1, but with a LEO satellite instead of GEO.
Besides the capabilities already validated in the GEO case, this demonstration will permit demonstrating UE-A capabilities to track a LEO satellite using 5G NR waveform and beam management procedures as well as to compensate the high Doppler shift produced by the low-high satellite orbit. Therefore, two major challenges are present in this scenario: pointing capabilities and Doppler shift compensation, even before the initial handshake to the network occurs. As stated before, a drone-Emulated LEO framework will be adopted to test connectivity and tracking with the UE-A. Therefore, no NMS will be used and the gateway will just perform upconversion and transmission to the drone.
