Rate-splitting is an emerging technology for future mobile communication systems. Instead of transmitting a different messages to each user, the messages are split into a common part, which is the same for all users, and private part, which shall be received only by the corresponding user. This general approach provides high flexibility for managing interference in mobile communication.

Satellites for the mobile land-satellite communication scenario are usually flying in the low-Earth orbit (LEO), due to the limited power of the mobile devices. However, accurate beamforming in such a scenario is very challenging and may lead to high interference, which  limits the performance of the downlink data rates. Rate-splitting seems to be a promising approach to handle the interference and thus, increase the overall donwlink quality.


In this thesis, rate-splitting shall be evaluated for satellite to land mobile communication, which includes:

  • Modelling of the land mobile-satellite communication channel
  • Investigations on existing rate-splitting algorithms
  • Adapting the algortihms to the given scenario
  • Numerical evaluations of the algorithms
This topic requieres good knowledge in wireless communication, linear algebra and optimization theory. Programming is preferred in Python or Matlab.
