With a Preface by noted satellite scientist Dr. Ahmad Ghais, theSecond Edition reflects the expanded user base for this technologyby updating information on historic, current, and plannedcommercial and military satellite systems and by expanding sectionsthat explain the technology for non-technical professionals. The book begins with an introduction to satellite communicationsand goes on to provide an overview of the technologies involved inmobile satellite communications, providing basic introductions toRF Issues, power Issues, link issues and system issues. Itdescribes early commercial mobile satellite communications systems,such as Marisat and Marecs and their military counterparts. The book then discusses the full range of Inmarsat and othercurrent and planned geostationary, low earth orbiting and hybridmobile satellite systems from over a dozen countries andcompanies. It is an essential guide for anyone seeking acomprehensive understanding of this industry and militarytool. * Revised edition will serve both technical andnon-technical professionals who rely every day on mobile satellitecommunications * Describes and explains historic, current, and plannedcivil, commercial, and military mobile satellite communicationsystems. * First Edition charts and tables updated and expandedwith current material for today's mobile satellite technology
