Abstract

The integrated MANET and satellite network is a natural evolution in providing local and remote connectivity. The features of this integrated network, such as requiring no fixed infrastructure, ease of deployment and providing global ubiquitous communication, give advantages of its being popular. However, its unpredictable mobility of nodes, lack of central coordination and limited available resources emphasizes the challenges in networking. A large library of studies has been done in literature, yet some issues are still worth tackling, such as gateway selection mechanisms, satellite link management, resource management and so on. As a basic step of internetworking, the issue of gateway selection is studied specifically and corresponding optimization scheme for achieving load balancing is described.
