- The national German research project Mobile Satellite communication in Ka-band (MoSaKa) addresses the growing interest in advanced heterogeneous satellite communication in Ka-band frequencies. In the framework of the project, a satellite communication system has been defined and developed which implements fully meshed connectivity among all stationary and mobile terminals and is dedicated to security, crisis, and rescue applications. In this paper we describe the adaptive and flexible resource allocation mechanism of MoSaKa which is distributed among the physical layer, data link layer and network layer.
