We propose a new framework for the link assignment (i.e., topological design) problem that arises from the use of intersatellite links (ISL's) in low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite networks. In the proposed framework, we model an LEO satellite network as a finite state automaton (FSA), where each state corresponds to an equal-length interval in the system period of the LEO satellite network. This FSA-based framework allows the link assignment problem in LEO satellite networks to be treated as a set of link assignment problems in fixed topology networks. Within this framework, we study various link assignment and routing schemes. In particular, both regular link assignment and link assignment optimized by simulated annealing are considered. For each link assignment, both static and dynamic routing schemes are considered. Our simulation results show that the optimized link assignment combined with static routing achieves the best performance in terms of both newly initiated call blocking probability and ongoing call blocking probability. The results also show that when the link assignment is the same, static routing gives better performance than dynamic routing since the latter requires a substantial amount of time to stabilize its routing table after a state transition
