Satellite Communications (Covering latest Digital Satellite Technologies and Systems)
Satellite Communications (Covering latest Digital Satellite Technologies and Systems) by D. C. Agarwal
Satellite communication is of much importance for both the national and international communications which may be in the form of telephone transmission, television and radio program distribution, computer communications, ISDNs, martime navigation and military command and control. Satellite communication is a very vast topic and involves several aspects of communication technology including both the analog and digital techniques.
Communication engineers are therefore supposed to have appropriate knowledge in satellite technology, link design and operations. In the present edition chapter on Global Positioning Satellite Systems and Satellite Program of India has been completely revised and new development in the field has been incorporated.
The book in its present form contains large number of solved problems and multichoice questions. The Illustrated Glossary too contains over 120 new terms and definitions. Also, the new chapter on Amateur Radio Satellites will interest the hobbists and ambitious students aiming for some project work.
This book through its thirty one chapters deals with the requisite communication technologies such as those of analog and digital satellite communication, multiple access technique, demand assignment, spread spectrum, random access techniques etc.; earth station technology and laser satellite communication. Discussions about satellite orbits and inclination, important subsystems of the communication satellites and various international as well as national satellites have been extensively made. A separate chapter is given for Indian activities in satellite communication providing the latest information till date.
