—In order to solve the problem that the throughput decline caused by the time variant of Inter-satellite links in satellite networks, this paper proposes an algorithm of opportunistic routing based on network coding for satellite network, and the maximum average throughput of the satellite network is modeled and solved. It uses network coding on the feedback messages to reduce the redundancy of nodes transmission and guarantee the reachability of neighbor nodes. Simulation results show that the ORCSN algorithm can improve the average throughput of the network, and also can adapts to changes in the loss rates of links.
