SatNEx aims to rectify the fragmentation in satellite communications research by bringing together Europe’s leading academic institutions and research organisations in a cohesive and durable way. The resultant pan-European network provides a collective grouping of expertise and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities that would otherwise remain dispersed throughout Europe. This paper gives a brief introduction to the SatNEx project and to the activities related to channel modelling.
