Satellites are increasingly used for global communications, as well as for radio and television transmissions. With the growth of mobile communications, and of digital technology, the use of satellite systems is set to expand substantially and already all students of electronics or communications engineering must study the subject. This book steers a middle path between offering a basic understanding of the process of communication by satellite and the methodology used; and the extensive mathematical analysis normally adopted in similar texts. It presents the basic concepts, using as much mathematical content as is necessary to make the process understandable. The principles introduced are backed up by examples of actual applications showing how professional systems engineers have achieved the required system performance capabilities. The practical systems chosen are representative of modern day applications and comprise an international communications system, an international maritime system and a regional system.

Trends in Communications Satellites offers a comprehensive look at trends and advances in satellite communications, including experimental ones such as NASA satellites and those jointly developed by France and Germany. The economic aspects of communications satellites are also examined. This book consists of 16 chapters and begins with a discussion on the fundamentals of electrical communications and their application to space communications, including spacecraft, earth stations, and orbit and wavelength utilization. The next section demonstrates how successful commercial satellite communications have become, citing the INTELSAT series of satellites. The forerunners of INTELSAT satellites are mentioned, and the major characteristics of all INTELSAT satellites are surveyed. One chapter is devoted to the rapidly growing use of communications satellites for various domestic systems, focusing on the systems developed by the Hughes Aircraft Company for Canada, Indonesia, and the United States. The next section considers the economics of communications satellite systems using the INTELSAT and COMSAT experience. The concluding section presents a compilation in tabular and graphical form of the physical characteristics of the satellites discussed in the text. This monograph will be a useful resource for satellite communications engineers as well as policymakers concerned with communications satellites and space exploration more generally.

Wireless communications are based on the launching, propagation, and detection of electromagnetic waves emitted primarily at radio or microwave frequencies. Their history can be traced back to the mid-19th century when James Clerk Maxwell formulated the basic laws of electromagnetism and Heinrich Hertz demonstrated the propagation of radio waves across his laboratory. Recent engineering breakthroughs have led to wireless communication systems that have not only revolutionized modern lifestyles, but have also launched new industries. Based on the author's course in the physics of wireless communications, Physical Principles of Wireless Communications provides students with a solid foundation in modern wireless communication systems. It offers rigorous analyses of the devices and physical mechanisms that constitute the physical layers of these systems. Starting with a review of Maxwell's equations, the textbook details the operation of antennas and antenna arrays, teaching students how to perform the necessary design calculations. It also explores the propagation of electromagnetic waves, leading to important descriptions of mean path loss. The text also reviews the principles of probability theory, enabling students to calculate the margins that must be allowed to account for statistical variation in path loss. In addition, it covers the physics of Geostationary Earth Orbiting (GEO) satellites and Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites so students may evaluate and make first-order designs of satellite communications (SATCOM) systems.
