The activity shall characterise the possible interference environment in the Ka shared band accounting for the relevant regulations, and to investigate techniques to mitigate interference from terrestrial systems in the Ka shared band to allow using this band forbroadband services. Targeted Improvements: Beam hopping can match offered capacity with traffic demand. Compared to uniform power and bandwidth assignment per user beam, the beam hopping provides 50% reduction of DC power consumption. Using the beam hopping, one power amplifier can serve up to 8 beams providing significant saving in required mass particularly for multi-beam systems with user link in Ka band with a large number of beams.
