Handbook covers the latest advances in satellite technology and applications. Features new chapters on mobile digital audio radio and VSAT networks. For satellite communications professionals and network architects. Includes index and references. Let 's see with us.
Upon completion of this lesson, the successful participant will be able to: Identify the advantages and disadvantage of deploying cellular technology; describe how satellite technology works; explain how LBS, GPS, and GIS help to create business value; describe RFID and how it can be used to help make a supply chain more effective.
Solar cells are optoelectronic devices that convert the energy of solar radiation directly
into electricity by the photovoltaic (PV) effect. Assemblies of cells electrically
connected together are known as PV modules, or solar panels. The photovoltaic effect
was first recognized in the 19th century but the modern PV cells were developed in
the mid-1950s. The practical application of photovoltaics started to provide energy for
The use of satellites in communications systems is very much a fact of everyday life, as
is evidenced by the many homes equipped with antennas, or dishes used for reception
of satellite television. What may not be so well known is that satellites form an
essential part of telecommunication systems worldwide, carrying large amounts of
data and telephone traffic in addition to the television signals.
The development and launch of the fi rst artifi cial satellite Sputnik more than fi ve decades
ago, propelled both the scientifi c and engineering communities to new heights
as they worked together to develop novel solutions to the challenges of spacecraft system
This chapter aims to introduce the basic concepts of satellite networking including appli-
cations and services, circuit and packet switching, broadband networks, network protocols
and reference models, characteristics of satellite networks, internetworking between satellite
and terrestrial networks and convergence of network technologies and protocols. When you
have completed this chapter, you should be able to:
Today, the development and use of microwave (3-30 GHz) and millimeter wave (30-300 GHz)
band is being actively promoted. Microwave has been used extensively since the Second World
War when the sources were based on vacuum devices. Microwaves are presently playing a
vital role in RADAR, land and satellite based communication and also have wide civilian and
defence applications. Two typical areas of application of millimeter-wave are information
communication and remote sensing.
Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo Galilei developed the scientific knowledge
that became the underpinning of spaceflight. Edward Everett Hale in ‘‘The Brick
Moon’’ and Jules Verne in ‘‘From the Earth to the Moon’’ dreamed and wrote
about it. But finally in the last half of the twentieth century, it was the
Americans and the Soviet Russians, locked in the throes of the Cold War, who
Space technology has become increasingly important after the great development and rapid progress in information and communication technology as well as the technology of space exploration. This book deals with the latest and most prominent research in space technology. The first part of the book (first six chapters) deals with the algorithms and software used in information processing, communications and control of spacecrafts.
Chapter 7 - Personal technology: the future is you. The topics discussed in this chapter are: Convergence, portability, & personalization; smartphones: more than talk; tablets & e-readers; portable media players; digital cameras: changing photography; high-tech radio: satellite, hybrid digital, & internet digital television; videogame systems: the ultimate convergence machine?
The last decade proved to be hugely successful for the mobile communications industry,
characterised by continued and rapid growth in demand, spurred on by new technological
advances and innovative marketing techniques. Of course, when we refer to mobile communications,
we tend to implicitly refer to cellular systems, such as GSM. The plight of the
mobile-satellite industry over the last decade, although eventful, has, at times, been more akin
to an out of control roller coaster ride.

An Encyclopedia of the History of Technology part 1. This one of a kind encyclopedia presents the entire field of technology from rudimentary agricultural tools to communication satellites in this first of its kind reference source.
Data Communications and Networking, 3/e provides a comprehensive and current introduction to networking technologies. The book is accessible to students from all backgrounds and uses hundreds of figures to visually represent concepts. The new edition has been completely updated to reflect the constantly changing world of network technologies. Enhanced coverage of bluetooth, wireless, satellites, as well as four new chapters on security have been added. The third edition has transitioned from using the 7-layer OSI model to the 5-layer Internet Model.
The term ‘microwaves’ is used for those wavelengths measured in centimetres roughly from
1 m. to 0.1 cm or the bands of frequencies between 300 MHz to 300 GHz. Microwaves are
most popularly used in point to point communication, TV broadcasting via satellites and in
RADAR systems. Besides these, they are also being used in industrial, biomedical, chemical
and in scientific research applications.
