INtegrated Satellite – TeRrestrial Systems for Ubiquitous Beyond 5G CommunicaTions

Project Overview

INSTRUCT is an industry-led research partnership between SES (the leader in global content connectivity solutions) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), University of Luxembourg, and envisions to create a fundamental shift in the existing ecosystem of 5G wireless systems towards a ubiquitous, intelligent, self – organized and secured satellite – terrestrial integrated system exploiting ground – breaking Satellite Communications (SatCom) technologies .
The main goals of the proposed INSTRUCT project are:
  1. Building on 10 years of collaborative research experience between SnT and SES, to initiate a long-term structured research programme between SnT and SES by
    • Seamlessly integrating and valorizing SatCom systems in Beyond 5G Networks
    • Interconnecting and expanding joint lab validation facilities available at both ends
    • Utilizing the interdisciplinary expertise of two research te ams (SigCom and SVV) within SnT
  2. To train the next generation of SatCom researchers / professionals
  3. To intensify Knowledge Transfer between SnT and SES
  4. To create innovation opportunities within the Luxembourgish SatCom Ecosystem
  5. To provide significant innovations in the area of High Performance Networks and promote Luxembourg’s vision of being a global hub of space and satellite services.
