With the ubiquitous deployment of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices and applications, satelliteaerial-terrestrial integrated network (SATIN) is regarded as a promising candidate to facilitate global IoT with diverse services. To accommodate the explosive demands of IoT within crowded spectrum, we focus on the cognitive radio based SATINs where spectrum sharing is enabled among satellite, aerial, and terrestrial network segments, and devote to efficient resource management. Specifically, by

Then, we propose a cooperative beamforming scheme to facilitate secure and energy-efficient IoT communications under limited energy for open channel environments in cognitive SATINs. Simulation results validate the superiority of cooperation resource management in cognitive SATINs towards IoT.
