From the Inside Flap:

Finally, a book with the material needed to analyze, design and use a satellite system for telecommunications. With this book, system designers, earth station operators, design engineers and students can understand how satellites function, and how they are used in ordinary service for voice, video, and data communications. This book will provide you with:

  • Identification of communications applications
  • The basic equations that govern the satellites and their uses
  • Descriptions of actual equipment used both in space and on the ground
  • What radio frequencies are used, with specific frequency assignments
  • How to calculate link budgets
  • How a satellite is launched and gets to its proper position
  • How it is kept there, and the amount of fuel needed
  • How to find the angles to point an earth station antenna
  • What are reliability models
  • How should the transmission system operate and how it can be checked
  • What traffic levels should be anticipated
The book has graphs, tables and illustrations to enable the user to solve problems and then verify the answers by cross checking with alternate solutions. The formulas have been designed for use with scientific calculators or personal computers. This book supplements other texts. It is an excellent bridge between theory and practical experience. It is a basic reference book for both the student and the experienced professional. A comprehensive index allows the reader to find material quickly.
