Spectrum efficiency is becoming a major issue in satellite communications due to the dramatically increasing data rates requirements and the competition with terrestrial networks. MIMO and time-frequency packing, by respectively exploiting space and frequency degrees of freedom, offer new perspectives and pave the way for even more spectral efficient communications. In this paper, receive strategies for MIMO geostationary satellite systems using time-frequency packing are designed and their performance is compared to state-of-the-art SISO strategies.
