A Practical Approach To Antenna Technology For Communication Satellites This authoritative resource discusses antenna technology for communication satellites, addressing both the space and user segments. The book provides a system view of antenna applications, a description of various antenna technologies, and guidance on methodologies for antenna evaluation. Communication Satellite Antennas begins with an overview of the parameters that characterize antennas, and goes on to cover the antenna designs, technologies, and system architectures required for communication satellite systems. Techniques to mitigate interference are covered, and the processes used in the development and characterization of antenna systems are reviewed. Discover how to: Adhere to the system parameters used to quantify antenna performance Understand the technologies used in wide coverage, earth coverage, narrow coverage, and array antennas Work within standard communication satellite system architectures and orbital alternatives Address propagation limitations and link performance Implement reliable antenna interference mitigation techniques Develop space segment antennas, including spot beam, multiple beam, adaptive uplink, active aperture, and point-to-point antennas Apply user segment technologies, such as reflector antenna technology, antenna sidelobe control techniques, and adaptive interference cancellation systems Evaluate satellite antennas and systems using rigorous methodologies
Reconnaissance satellites, first deployed in the early 1960s to peer into denied regions of the Soviet Union and other secretive enemy states, have from time to time been used by civilian agencies of the federal government to assist with mapping, disaster relief, and environmental concerns. There follows a discussion of legal considerations, including whether satellite reconnaissance might constitute a search within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment; an overview of statutory authorities, as well as restrictions that might apply; and a brief description of executive branch authorities and Department of Defense directives that might apply. The book concludes by suggesting policy issues Congress may consider as it deliberates the potential advantages and pitfalls that may be encountered in expanding the role of satellite intelligence for homeland security purposes.
Satellite Communication is a special technology in the field of Electronic Communication Systems. A Graduate engineering students with Electronics and Communication Engineering will find this book useful to understand the concepts of satellite communication. This book deals with the technology and gives an adequate treatment of the subject. Analysis and design of satellite communication equipment is also treated to the extent required for the engineering graduates. It is very useful reference for the candidates preparing for higher studies and competitive examinations. Mathematical analysis is presented wherever required and concepts are well illustrated. It also deals with latest technological developments in the related fields. Spread in 11 chapters the book discusses: Development of the satellite communication. Orbits of the satellite. Link analysis Basic subsystems of the satellite Methods of multiple access Earth station design.
The 6th IAA Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation, initiated by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), was again hosted by DLR, the German Aerospace Center. The participation of scientists, engineers, and managers from 24 countries reflected the high interest in the use of small satellites for dedicated missions applied to Earth observation. The contributions showed that dedicated Earth observation missions cover a wide range of very different tasks.
Over that past decade, the growth of GPS and other navigation systems has been staggering. More and more electrical engineers are migrating towards work in this field and require knowledge of important GNSS (global navigation satellite system) principles. That's why Artech House decided the time was right to put this classic Prentice Hall title back into print. Although technology has progressed at a remarkable pace in the decade and a half since its publication, the principles of navigation systems described in this book are immutable.In fact, the book presents the engineering basics so well that practicing engineers and students have been scouring the Internet looking for used copies. Finally, this essential resource will be readily available, providing authoritative guidance on everything from the fundamentals of terrestrial navigation, error calculations, and direction finding...to satellite orbits and geometry, satellite navigation principles, and spread spectrum. Moreover, the book provides concise descriptions of key navigation systems developed decades ago that are still widely in use - information that is extremely hard to find.
Satellite Communications and Navigation Systems publishes the proceedings of the 2006 Tyrrhenian International Workshop on Digital Communications. The book focuses on the integration of communication and navigation systems in satellites.
This workshop proceedings introduces the latest innovations and trends in IP-based applications and satellite networking. It explains many aspects of advanced satellite networking systems, such as deployment of IPv6 over satellites, working with WLAN and WiMax, and rules concerning multi-segment networks. In addition, the book covers hot-button issues such as security, architecture improvement, resource allocation, video networking, and service integration.
Praise for the first edition: It is a wonderful source of information and has the merit of going straight to the subject, being technically precise although very easy to understand. There are numerous pictures, photographs, diagrams, which make the reading a real pleasure. --European Broadcasting Union Technical Review The complexity of a satellite newsgathering system could be a four-month long college course with a high tuition rate and an enrolment number so large you have to watch your professor on a TV screen. Jonathan Higgins might have saved the independent learner a few attendance point deductions by fitting it into one book. --Satellite Broadband magazine An ideal introduction for anyone working, or interested, in satellite newsgathering (SNG). The new edition of this popular book builds upon the success of the first--an important and valuable work that is extermely easy to read, comprehensive in its treatment, and detailed where necessary. SNG used to be an immensely complex and expensive affair where broadcasting organizations were at the mercy of an expert who sat in a lonely corner, until needed. Things have changed--everyone in a global news organization needs to know about it now. This is not only because of the high costs of mistakes, but because now even non-technical journalists on the ground have to operate their own equipment. Learn the skills, basics of equipment, cutting edge technology and critical safety issues of satellite newsgathering.
Discusses long-term developments Addresses advanced physical layer techniques designed for broadband communications, for fixed and mobile terminals Considers 4G evolutions and possible convergence between different technologies
This book provides significant knowledge on innovative radio resource management schemes for satellite communication systems that exploit lower layer adaptivity and the knowledge of layer 3 IP QoS support and transport layer behavior. The book integrates competencies considering all the parts of system design: propagation aspects, radio resource management, access protocols, network protocols, transport layer protocols, and more, to cover both broadband and mobile satellite systems.
This book provides information on the Earth science remote sensing data information and data format such as HDF-EOS. It evaluates the current data processing approaches and introduces data searching and ordering from different public domains. It further explores the remote sensing and GIS migration products and WebGIS applications. Both volumes are designed to give an introduction to current and future NASA, NOAA and other Earth science remote sensing.
