Paper Abstract

As the environment of space network is much different from that of terrestrial wired network, the application of TCP protocol in space network may faces some special challenges, First is that the Round Trip Time (RTT) is greatly increased by the long propagation on the space radio channel, Second is that the high packets error rate resulting from space channel cannot be considered negligible, Both these aspects may result in the TCP transmitting efficiency degradation. A new scheme to enhance the TCP transmitting efficiency is proposed in this paper, simulation results show that both the throughput and time delay is greatly improved by the use of this scheme.
