Abstract

Space-Ground Integrated Network (SGIN) is the future network, and the satellite-earth link channel is one critical part of the SGIN. This paper simulates the satellite-earth link channel of SGIN based on the simulation environment of OMNeT++. We set up the model of space-ground network and satellite-earth link channel. The satellite-earth link channel includes two main parts, one part is the free space channel that ranges from the satellites to the aerosphere and the other part is the channel that ranges from aerosphere to the ground terminals. According to the ITU Recommendations, we simulate the satellite-earth link channel of the SGIN, from the results of the simulation. We analyze the satellite-earth link channel attenuation, obtaining the packet delay and packet arrival rate of the SGIN as well.
