This research covers the emerging technology of Satellite and GPS Communications. It gives a view of how this technology is adding a new dimension to daily activities. Its applications range from a country's defense system to locating a local store in any area. The Global Positioning System, usually called GPS, is the only fully-functional satellite navigation system. A constellation of more than two dozen GPS satellites broadcasts precise timing signals by radio, allowing any GPS receiver (abbreviated to GPSr) to accurately determine its location (longitude, latitude, and altitude) in any weather, day or night, anywhere on Earth. GPS has become a vital global utility, indispensable for modern navigation on land, sea, and air around the world, as well as an important tool for map-making and land surveying. GPS also provides an extremely precise time reference, required for telecommunications and some scientific research, including the study of earthquakes. GPS receivers can also gauge altitude and speed with a very high degree of accuracy. Prof. Dr. Marcin Swiston, Ph.D., MBA works as Chief Engineer for one of the world's biggest satellite communication companies. Due to the size of the company and location of its all on-shore and off-shore remote offices he has the opportunity to work with the best and most knowledgeable people in the satellite industry and to lead multinational and multicultural team of experts. He graduated from various universities in Poland, USA and England. He is Ph.D. in Physics, MBA in Technical Project Management and MSc. in IT and Systems Engineering. He is also a DBAM, Cisco, Apple and Sun Microsystems Certified Expert. In July 2006 he was appointed as the Honorary Doctor of Philosophy and the Honorary Professor of the Regent University (USA) in recognition of his achievements and contribution in the fields of Satellite Communication and Networking. He is currently enrolled in Business Administration doctorate program at Chelsea University in London.
