Product Description

Review

"This timely update of the 2007 edition incorporates the latest advances in satellite technology, with a new chapter on earth station design and particular focus on space–based weapons systems, satellite interference issues, and future trends in the field." (Booknews, 1 February 2011)  --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Offering readers a concise and yet comprehensive reference, Satellite Technology provides a unique coverage of both the principles and applications in this wide field.  This book covers the technological and application aspects of satellites in one volume, ensuring not only extensive coverage of communications–related applications of satellites, but also other important applications such as remote sensing, weather forecasting, navigation, scientific and military.

The essentials of satellite technology are explained, by giving an introduction to the fundamental topics such as orbits and trajectories, launch and in–orbit operations before going on to describe satellite hardware, communication techniques, multiple access techniques and link design.  Topics range from the history and evolution of satellites, and the laws governing motion of artificial satellites around earth, to multiplexing techniques, satellite subsystems and link design fundamentals.

  • Amply illustrated with a large number of figures and photographs, as well as relevant mathematics and design examples
  • Contains a large number of problems with solutions, which would particularly benefit students at undergraduate and graduate levels
  • Companion website provides a complete compendium on features and facilities of satellites and satellite launch vehicles from past, present and planned futuristic satellite missions for various applications

The coverage of satellite technology together with its applications make the book an essential reference book for professionals, R&D scientists and engineers and students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Format: Hardcover
I have read the book in detail, I want to share some of my thoughts with the readers. I must say that the book is unique and one of its kind in content and presentation. It is such a nice and comprehensive blend of technology-related and application-related aspects of satellites. I would like to highlight two special features. One is comprehensive treatment of non-communication applications of satellites. Second is simple and very easy-to-understand description of technological aspects related to satellite orbits, trajectories and launch procedures, which are otherwise considered as very difficult topics. Congratulations to both authors for successfully attempting such a work, which was badly needed by students, researchers and professionals alike. And congratulations to publishers on bringing out the book in an amazing production get-up.
