Abstract

Current space-ground IP networks cannot achieve real-time signaling interaction between aircraft users and GEO freely in large service ranges, so there is packet drop rate when aircraft users hand off between different GEO satellites. This paper proposes a new scheme to provide seamless handover service for aircraft users. Since the control center can obtain the orbit and position of aircraft can be obtained timely and accurately, during the handover process, it initiates the control signaling in different aspects to fulfill a complete handover process based on standard mobile IP protocol. Compared with other schemes, the proposed scheme can reduce packet drop rate in the handover process. Moreover, the time delay for data transmission is reduced based on mobile IPv6 technique.
