About this book


Digital Satellite Communications focuses on the study and design of efficient and flexible physical layers for broadband mobile and fixed satellite links. The chapters address long-term developments for advanced physical layer techniques in broadband communications, fixed and mobile terminals, and 4G evolutions with a potential convergence between different technologies.

A general description of satellite systems and services is provided which organizes the material into a generalized and readable framework. The approach is both analytical and descriptive.

The book provides a unified view of essential topics, including:

·         fundamental theories

·         channel coding and modulation

·         synchronization and parameter estimation

·         distortions and countermeasures

·         diversity techniques

·         multiplexing and multiple access schemes

·         software radio

Digital Satellite Communications is ideal for researchers and students in the fields of communication and signal processing.


Counter Modulation Software coding communication radio
