A multibeam concept under full frequency reuse is a major prerequisite for high throughput satellite systems. The resulting interference problems might be tackled by appropriately designed precoding or multiuser detection schemes. However, before such powerful techniques are applicable, the most important transmission parameters have to be recovered successfully. In the context of this paper, a feedback structure for joint control of carrier frequency and symbol timing is investigated for a multibeam scenario, which has been developed in some previous work by the authors for a single user link. It is to be noticed that we describe a recovery method for a multibeam satellite network with suitably selected interference mitigation techniques; as a consequence, all cochannels are assumed to be aligned in frequency and time to the reference beam; other signal models are out of scope and not addressed in this contribution.
