This technical report is related to a study item New Radio to support Non-Terrestrial Networks. The purpose of this TR is to collect the TSG RAN and RAN WG1 findings related to the study.
The objectives for the study are the following
Definition of the Non-Terrestrial Networks deployment scenarios and related system parameters such as architecture, altitude, orbit etc.
Adaptation of the 3GPP channel models for non-terrestrial networks (propagation conditions, mobility...)
For the described deployment scenarios, identification of any key impact areas on the New Radio interface that may need further evaluations.
