This article deals with iterative Frequency Domain Equalization (FDE) for Single Carrier (SC) transmissions over Volterra non linear satellite channels. SC-FDE has gained much importance in recent research for its efficient implementation at the receiver and its interesting low Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) at the transmitter. However, nearly saturated power amplifiers on board satellites generate linear and non linear Inter Symbol Interference (ISI) at the receiver. It is thus interesting to investigate the implementation of SC-FDE for non linear channels. To do so, a frequency domain equivalent satellite channel is derived based on the time domain Volterra series representation of the non linear channel. Then a Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE)-based iterative frequency domain equalizer is designed. It is shown that the proposed equalizer consists of a Soft Interference Canceller (SIC) which subtracts both the linear and non-linear soft frequency symbols. The equalizer performance is then compared to the equivalent time domain implementation. Results show that a channel-memory independent efficient implementation is achieved at the price of a negligible spectral efficiency loss due to cyclic prefix insertion.
