ABOUT US

"Next Generation Satellite Communications creates Space and Ground integrated Global Networks"

The Space Communications Laboratory aims for contributing to the implementation of an integrated space-ground network that enables the use of space big data in future by combining optical satellite communications and Ka-band satellite communications.


Message from the Director

We believe that "Researches are important activities that enrich the people by new findings and novel technologies".

Through R&Ds on space communication technologies, we hope to realize a future in which the people who have failed to use ICT technologies in isolated islands, ships, aircraft, and even on the moon, will be able to use smartphones freely. Looking at the Earth from the space, there are no boundaries of the countries, therefore we are promoting R&Ds aiming for realizing space communication technologies that can help serving mankind.

If you are interested in space developments, let's create such a future together.

PROJECTS

When 5G is put into practical use, the communication can be realized under such the areas and environments where the terrestrial communications are difficult to be used at present, and it is expected that IoT that the people and every sort of things are connected via the wireless communication and the more advanced IoE are widely disseminated. However, 5G services still remain unavailable over the sea, at the mountains and at the isolated areas, where radio waves cannot reach, or when base stations are damaged due to disasters.

To solve these problems of connectivity, the Space Communications Laboratory has been carrying out the research and development aiming for constructing space-ground integrated networks with a view to use the big date in space by combining optical satellite communications and Ka-band satellite communications to support 5G communications.
