Application: Communication satellite system, earth-side control facility, ground facility, artificial satellite, communication ground center, and transmission route search device (Patent ID: US20230421246A1)

The patent filed by Mitsubishi Electric Corp. describes a communication satellite system that includes multiple artificial satellites flying in inclined circular orbits, each equipped with fore-aft communication devices for cross-link communication with satellites in adjacent orbits. This system enables communication between orbits only through the fore-aft communication devices, forming multiple communication networks covering the entire circumference of the orbits. The system also involves air-to-ground communication devices for communication with ground facilities in specific latitude ranges, and laterally-oriented satellites for communication with adjacent satellites in left and right directions.

Additionally, the patent includes claims related to the orbital inclination, odd number of satellites on each plane, different types of communication devices, mission devices for specific tasks, earth-side control facilities, ground facilities in high latitude regions, user communication devices, transmission route search devices, edge computing capabilities, and satellite constellations for surveillance and flying object monitoring. The system also involves edge servers, computers with artificial intelligence, and supercomputers or data centers mounted on mission satellites for various tasks such as collision risk analysis, flying object tracking, flying path prediction, and data transmission to ground assets. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive communication satellite system with advanced capabilities for efficient and secure communication across multiple orbital planes.
