Abstract--Future Low Earth Orbiting spacecrafts will
contain several IP-enabled devices, such as Earth observing
equipment, that will be accessible by terrestrial users
through the Internet. Mobility solutions, such as Mobile
IPv6, can be used to handle the mobility of individual
devices as the spacecraft moves around the Earth and
handsover between ground stations. Mobility management
of individual hosts, however, results in large amount of
signaling in the bandwidth-limited satellite links and man-
