This paper proposes a time-dependent gateway earth station (GES) assignment method for a user terminal in non-geostationary orbiting satellite systems. Time-dependent nature of the GES service area is first discussed for an example intermediate circular orbit system. Then, the time-dependent GES assignment method is proposed. Finally, the advantage of the proposed method is shown by several calculation results.
