Preface to Satellite Communications PDF
As with earlier editions, the fourth version offers broad protection of satellite tv for pc communications, whereas sustaining ample depth to put the foundations for extra superior research.
Arithmetic is used as a descriptive device and to acquire numerical outcomes, however prolonged mathematical derivations are averted.
In organising numerical issues and examples the writer has made use of Mathcad™, a pc program, however the labored examples within the textual content are offered in regular algebraic notation, in order that different applications, together with programmable calculators, can be utilized.
The primary modifications in comparison with the earlier version are as follows. In Chap. 1 the sections on INTELSAT and polar-orbiting satellites, together with environmental and search and rescue, have been up to date.
Solar-synchronous orbits have been handled in additional element in Chap. 2. A brand new part on planar antennas and arrays, together with reflectarrays, and array switching has been added in Chap. 6. Chapter 8 consists of extra particulars on the C-band reception of tv indicators.
In Chap. 11, a extra detailed description is given of linear block codes, and new sections on the Shannon capability and turbo and low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes have been included.
Chapter 12 has a brand new part on inter-satellite hyperlinks (ISLs), together with optical hyperlinks. Chapter 15 has been extensively rewritten to incorporate extra fundamental particulars on networks and asynchronous switch mode (ATM) operation.
Chapter 16 covers excessive definition tv (HDTV) in additional element, and the Iridium cellular satellite tv for pc system, which is now below new possession, is described in Chap. 17. On this age of heightened safety issues, it has proved tough to get detailed technical data on satellite tv for pc programs and tools.
