Ka-band High-throughput-satellite (HTS) systems reuse frequency bands in spot beams for much higher system capacity and better spectrum efficiency. They however are prone to intra-system co-color interference and so suffer from the channel signal-to-noise-plus-interference ratio (SNIR) degradation. This chapter presents the development of the uplink SNIR probability models for Ka-band spot beam HTS systems. The models are applicable to different Ka-band propagation channel conditions of statistical significance. Its use of collective representation to model traffic variation of co-color beams captures the statistics of traffic variation and allows feasibility and variety of use case representation. The analytical approach complements known studies and fills in the blank of the use cases of urban and mobile users. The models can be used for system design performance estimation and prediction. It features computation time and memory savings in numerical implementation.
