HPI system provides 1-3 Mbps data transmission speed to terminals moving up to 60 km/sec. Since HPI supports rtPS, nrtPS, and BE services requiring different QoS, it needs an efficient scheduling method based on those different QoSs. This paper suggests an uplink scheduling method which gives priority to services in the order of rtPS, nrtPS and BE services but which reserves some bandwidth for the low priority services before it allocates the bandwidth to higher priority services. Simulation results show that it can improve the uplink performance by reserving mean transmission rate to each nrtPS terminal and by reserving bandwidth, which amounts to about 1.5 times the mean transmission rate of the whole BE terminals, to the whole BE terminals.
