Satellite communication is available anywhere on earth, allowing connectivity to systems like Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in very remote geographical areas. However, satellite airtime is expensive, and a reduction of the amount of transmitted data can lead to significant cost savings. The goal of the Highly-Efficient Network Coding for Satellite Applications (HENCSAT) project is to reduce such costs by using our approach Network Coding with Torrents (NECTOR). NECTOR combines network coding, Torrent-based transmission, and H.265 highly efficient video encoding. In our demonstration, we would like to showcase NECTOR in an interactive HENCSAT test bench setup.
