A concept for a future advanced mobile satellite communications system using a geostationary satellite is described. In the satellite of this system, a multiple spotbeam antenna, onboard beam interconnection, and millimeter-wave and Ka-band components are required. The configuration of the payloads of Japan's COMETS (Communications and Broadcasting Engineering Test Satellite) for advanced mobile satellite communication experiments is also described. The transponder has an IF filter bank and a SCPC/TDM (signal-carrier-per-channel/time-dimension multiplexing) regenerative modem for beam interconnection
