Unmanned Aerial vehicles (UAVs) can transmit critical Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance data right from drones when operators need real-time access to information and find it hard to wait for the return of aircraft. Artificial satellites are applied in offering communication links between different points on earth. Satellite communication can be helpful in telecommunication systems globally. SATCOM is the data and voice service that allows aircraft to communicate using satellite using air traffic control and airline operations centers at high-frequency stations and when covering the conventional ground radar. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Satcom are applied in different aspects of real-life applications like traffic monitoring, play load delivery, surveillance, and seemingly dangerous areas. They can go where one cannot go and experience experiences that were never seen before. UAV Satcom is used when transmitting the ISR, Intelligence, and reconnaissance data right from drones, especially in situations in which the decision-makers need near real-time. All current signs show the exciting and bright future for using unmanned aerial vehicle Satcom technology. The future generations are projected to feature enhanced autonomy and improve safety standards. SATCOM can be the future communication link for UAVs. SATCOM is being used increasingly in surveys in the aftermath of any disaster.

Maritime transport has become very important due to its ability to internationally unite all continents. In turn, during the last two years, we have observed that the increase of consumer goods has resulted in global shipping deadlocks. In addition, the future goes through the role of ports and efficiency in maritime transport, with the aim of decarbonizing its impact on the environment. In order to improve the economy and people's lives, in this work, we propose to enhance services offered in maritime logistics. To do this, a communications system is designed on the deck of ships to transmit data through a constellation of satellites using interconnected smart devices based on IoT. Among the services, we highlight the monitoring and tracking of refrigerated containers, the transmission of geolocation data from GPS, and security through AIS. This information will be used for a fleet of ships to make better decisions and help guarantee the status of the cargo, as well as maritime safety on the routes. The system design, network dimensioning, and a communications protocol for decision-making will be presented.
