Satellite Communications

Author: David Calcutt
Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann
ISBN: 9780340614488
Release Date: 1994
Genre: Technology & Engineering

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.

"Von der Erde zum Mond" ist ein Roman des französischen Autors Jules Verne. Der Roman wurde erstmals 1865 unter dem französischen Titel "De la Terre à la Lune" von dem Verleger Pierre-Jules Hetzel veröffentlicht. Die erste deutschsprachige Ausgabe erschien 1873 unter dem Titel "Von der Erde zum Mond". Der englische Titel des Romans lautet "From the Earth to the Moon". Es handelt sich um ein frühes Werk des Science-Fiction-Genres, das die Mondfahrt um etwa hundert Jahre vorwegnimmt. Allerdings geht es hier vor allem noch um die Vorbereitung des Abenteuers. Der Roman "Reise um den Mond" ("Autour de la Lune") von 1870 setzte die Geschichte fort.
