Abstract

Inter-satellite networking is the development trend of satellite navigation system through inter-satellite link technologies. How to schedule inter-satellite link resources is the key to whether the navigation satellite constellation network has the best performance in the time division multiple access system. To achieve this goal, this paper assumes a linking rule based on a multi-layer satellite constellation and constructs a corresponding mathematical model to describe the linking process of inter-satellite links. Based on the assumed linking rule and the proposed mathematical model, a time-division topology design scheme is proposed. The process of data transmission is simulated with the simulation software MATLAB and STK. The results show that the inter-satellite network topology generated under this scheme gets a very considerable promotion on inter-satellite measurement accuracy and transmission characteristics.
