The pre-emption procedure is an important part of the radio resource management when dealing with the emergency traffic. It allows resources to be allocated to higher priority connections by pre-empting lower priority connections. The provision of the pre-emption mechanism becomes much more important in the case of satellite systems such as the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network system, which aids in providing the communication during a catastrophe. This paper focuses on the pre-emption framework for a Universal Mobile Telecommunications System-based satellite systems. Three algorithms have been proposed, Greedy, SubSetSum and Fuzzy pre-emption algorithm. Extensive simulations are carried out for the three algorithms, and their performances are compared against each other.
