Integrated satellite and terrestrial networks can be used to solve communication problems in natural disasters, forestry monitoring and control, and military communication. Unlike traditional communication methods, integrated networks are effective solutions because of their advantages in communication, remote sensing, monitoring, navigation, and all-weather seamless coverage. Monitoring, urban management, and other aspects will also have a wide range of applications. This study first builds an integrated network overlay model, and divides the satellite network into two categories: terrestrial network end users and satellite network end users. The energy efficiency, throughput, and signal-to-noise ratio (SINR) are deduced and analyzed. In this paper, we discuss the influence of various factors, such as transmit power, number of users, size of the protected area, and terminal position, on energy efficiency and SINR. A satellite-sharing scheme with a combination of the user location and an exclusion zone with high energy efficiency and anti-jamming capability is proposed to provide better communication quality for end users in integrated satellite and terrestrial networks.
