The Role of Satellites in On-Demand Provision of Wireless Networks



Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are transformative technologies for managing interconnected systems between a system’s physical assets and computational capabilities. Most of CPSs are networked, typically via the Internet or the cloud, or via special logical or physical networks, leading s to networked CPS (Net-CPS). This presentation will describe how these interdependencies lead us to a Software-Defined Architecture for Net-CPS and how satellite constellations can play an important and indispensable role in these developments.
