Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of group size estimation for hybrid satellite/terrestrial multipoint communications. Estimators based on the maximum likelihood principle are investigated. These estimators assume that a Nack suppression mechanism is implemented at transport layer. The performance of these estimators is studied theoretically and via simulations. The integration of an appropriate group size estimator in a transport mechanism is finally considered.
