Future mobile communication systems will be characterized by the integration of several networks at the system level. Therefore, the satellite component and the terrestrial one will use as far as possible the same protocols. Accordingly, this paper investigates the possibility of using the packet-reservation multiple-access (PRMA) technique as a medium access control protocol for low-Earth orbit-mobile satellite systems (LEO-MSSs). A modified version of the PRMA protocol, named PRMA with hindering states (PRMA-HSs), is also proposed in order to attain better performance
