A Simulation Tool to Study Routing in Large Broadband Satellite Networks
by Kempton, Benjamin Sky, M.S., Christopher Newport University, 2020, 63; 28030221
Abstract (Summary)

Large, low Earth orbit, broadband satellite networks have recently become a growing area of research as a number of implementations are currently being constructed by commercial businesses. Unlike previous systems, these new constellations are comprised of 100's to 1,000's of interconnected satellites. This thesis project has resulted in a novel simulation tool that enables the study of inter-satellite linking methods in large satellite constellations: SImulator for Large LEO-Satellite Communication NetworkS (SILLEO-SCNS). Additionally, the thesis presents the analysis of several network designs and constellation structures, with regards to their routing performance.
