9 MHz for uplinks to these systems, which is a heavily utilized spectrum worldwide for private and government services. Now three organizations have received their licenses, namely, Orbital Communications Corporation (ORBCOMM), with 36 satellites at the altitude of 775 km; Volunteers in Technical Assistance (VITASAT); and STARNET, with 24 satellites at the altitude of 1,000 km. Several others have proposed systems. ORBCOMM has a national service plan in the United States, and both VITASAT and STARNET have global services.
American Mobile Satellite Corporation (AMSC), NSTAR of Japan, European mobile satellite (EMS), and OPTUS of Australia are other satellite systems included in the second generation of MSS. Detailed descriptions of those GEO-based mobile satellite communication systems, with either global or continental service, can be found in some literature [9,10]. The two-decade age of these GEO satellite systems shows that, although their services are acceptable for maritime and aeronautical purposes, they are not good candidates for future personal communication systems.
The basic concept of partitioning the footprint of a satellite into small cells came from the same idea used in current terrestrial cellular systems. Generally, as an advantage, with multiple-cell configuration, we can reuse the frequency bands in sufficiently separated cells or improve the bandwidth efficiency . Another advantage is that by dividing a wide service area into small cells, the radio frequency (RF) power of users can be reduced due to the concentration of power into smaller areas, equivalent to a higher satellite antenna gain.
