DVB-S2X is the cornerstone for satellite communication standards forming the state of the art of broadband satellite waveforms. In this paper, we propose new application scenarios and advanced techniques, including a reference design implementing superframing, predistortion, a robust synchronization chain, and a plug-and-play channel interleaver. We demonstrate by means of software simulations and hardware tests that the DVB-S2X can be a common technology enabler for land-mobile, aeronautical, and maritime satellite scenarios in addition to the more traditional VSAT scenario, even in very challenging conditions (eg, very low signal-to-noise ratio).
