With the fast development of giant LEO constellations, the effective spectrum utilization has been regarded as one of the key orientations for satellite communications. This paper focuses on improving the spectrum utilization efficiency of satellite communications by proposing a non-continuous orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (NC-OFDM) method. Based on the models of NC-OFDM system, we first propose a sub-carrier allocation method by using spectrum sensing to efficiently perceive and

Finally, simulation results verify that the proposed algorithm can significantly improve the spectrum efficiency of satellite communications.
