First published in 1986, Satellite Communications is unique in focusing on the principles behind satellite communication systems rather than the encyclopedic range of specific systems. Continued in the completely updated Second Edition, this approach allows students to fully master the concepts that govern how a satellite communication system transfers information. In the Second Edition, a new author, Jeremy Allnut, has joined the team, four new chapters have been added covering important new topics, and many more worked examples are included.
