A new handover strategy named minimal-hops handover(MHH) strategy for the low earth orbit(LEO) satellite constellations networks equipped with inter-satellite links(ISLs) is proposed. MHH strategy, which is based on the hops of the end-to-end connection paths and makes good use of the regularity of the constellation network topology, can appropriately combine the handover procedure with routing and efficiently solve the inter-satellite handover issue. Moreover, MHH strategy can provide qualitydoi:10.1117/12.523149 fatcat:7iouenl37ncznphak4ictotaia
