Abstract: 
Substantially long round trip time (RTT) in space channel hurts TCP interactions between the sending and receiving ends, and limits the usefulness and effectiveness of TCP feedback. Space Communication Protocol Standards-Transport Protocol (SCPS-TP) is a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) enhancement method aimed at improving its performance in space and interplanetary Internet and is expected to have capability of being feasible applied to experimental evaluation of the effectiveness of SCPS-TP in coping with long channel delay. This paper presents an experimental evaluation of channel delay impact on throughput performance of SCPS-TP over LEO/GEO-stationary space links using a test-bed, compared with the widely deployed TCP.
