Capitalize on Expert Foresight into the Future of Satellite Communication Satellite technology will maintain its key role in the evolving communications needs of government, military, IPTV, and mobile video industries because of its intrinsic multicast/broadcast capabilities, mobility aspects, global reach, reliability, and ability to quickly support connectivity in open-space or hostile environments. At a different level, Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) technology is now being deployed around the world to provide true explicit end-to-end device addressability, as evidenced by onboard IP and IPv6 routers that will enable future satellites to facilitate intelligent traffic distribution. In the final analysis, the integration of satellite communication and IPv6 capabilities promises a powerful networking infrastructure to serve all enterprises. Tangible Results to Illustrate Evolving IPv6 Applications Satellite Systems Engineering in an IPv6 Environment will aid U.S. government agencies and other ventures that rely on satellite systems by elucidating the critical interplay and overlaying of IP(v6) routing over a satellite-based transmission channel. This forward-looking and pragmatic review of communications and engineering in emerging IPv6 environments focuses more on functional engineering results and less on derivation of mathematical equations, applying transmission theory to TCP/IP packet applications such as government communications, sensor networks, IPTV distribution, and delivery of TV signals to phones. A Practical Review of the Bleeding Edge of Technology As billions of intelligent systems require direct access, IPv6 becomes an institutional imperative. An IPv6 primer, this book considers newly evolving applications, focusing first on traditional issues and then on the new technology. The author’s simplified treatment of complex topics enables you to grasp them and extract the details you require to stay competitive and up to date.

The challenge of communication in planetary exploration has been unusual. The guidance and control of spacecraft depend on reliable communication. Scientific data returned to earth are irreplaceable, or replaceable only at the cost of another mission. In deep space, communications propagation is good, relative to terrestrial communications, and there is an opportunity to press toward the mathematical limit of microwave communication. Yet the limits must be approached warily, with reliability as well as channel capacity in mind. Further, the effects of small changes in the earth's atmosphere and the interplanetary plasma have small but important effects on propagation time and hence on the measurement of distance. Advances are almost incredible. Communication capability measured in 18 bits per second at a given range rose by a factor of 10 in the 19 years from Explorer I of 1958 to Voyager of 1977. This improvement was attained through ingenious design based on the sort of penetrating analysis set forth in this book by engineers who took part in a highly detailed and amazingly successful pro gram. Careful observation and analysis have told us much about limitations on the accurate measurement of distance. It is not easy to get busy people to tell others clearly and in detail how they have solved important problems. Joseph H. Yuen and the other contribu tors to this book are to be commended for the time and care they have devoted to explicating one vital aspect of a great adventure of mankind.

This is the first book primarily about the satellite payload ofsatellite communications systems. It represents a uniquecombination of practical systems engineering and communicationstheory. It tells about the satellites in geostationary andlow-earth orbits today, both the so-called bent-pipe payloads andthe processing payloads. The on-orbit environment, mitigated by thespacecraft bus, is described. The payload units (e.g. antennas andamplifiers), as well as payload-integration elements (e.g.waveguide and switches) are discussed in regard to how they work,what they do to the signal, their technology, environmentsensitivity, and specifications. At a higher level are discussionson the payload as an entity: architecture including redundancy;specifications--what they mean, how they relate to unitspecifications, and how to verify; and specification-complianceanalysis (“budgets”) with uncertainty. Aspects ofprobability theory handy for calculating and using uncertainty andvariation are presented. The highest-level discussions, on theend-to-end communications system, start with a practicalintroduction to physical-layer communications theory. Atmosphericeffects and interference on the communications link are described.A chapter gives an example of optimizing a multibeam payload viaprobabilistic analysis. Finally, practical tips on systemsimulation and emulation are provided. The carrier frequenciestreated are 1 GHz and above. Familiarity with Fourier analysis willenhance understanding of some topics. References are providedthroughout the book for readers who want to dig deeper. Payload systems engineers, payload proposal writers,satellite-communications systems designers and analysts, andsatellite customers will find that the book cuts their learningtime. Spacecraft-bus systems engineers, payload unit engineers, andspacecraft operators will gain insight into the overall system.Students in systems engineering, microwave engineering,communications theory, probability theory, and communicationssimulation and modelling will find examples to supplementtheoretical texts.

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.

Doppler Applications in LEO Satellite Communication Systems develops and presents an important class of techniques useful in the construction of little Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communication systems. It centers on the very significant Doppler shift that attends communications through a LEO satellite and shows how this phenomenon can be exploited for an unexpected benefit. The techniques taught in the book are expected to be particularly attractive to system engineers because ground-based transceivers must generally compensate for the large Doppler component and therefore the necessary receiver processing loops are often already in place and expensed. This volume starts with a recounting of the characteristics of a LEO satellite and its orbit. The 2nd chapter addresses the LEO orbital geometry and reviews the Doppler effect attending LEO communications. Chapter three is focused on the important task of estimating the Doppler at a ground terminal. Appropriate signal processing algorithms are reviewed. Chapter four is concerned with predicting LEO satellite visibility. Chapters five and six are, respectively, devoted to the use of the significant LEO Doppler as an aid in a new traffic flow control protocol and as an aid for effecting communications power control. The last chapter describes MATLAB® based analysis. Doppler Applications in LEO Satellite Communication Systems provides a thorough review of the LEO Doppler phenomenon.
