A Practical Approach To Antenna Technology For Communication Satellites
This authoritative resource discusses antenna technology for communication satellites, addressing both the space and user segments. The book provides a system view of antenna applications, a description of various antenna technologies, and guidance on methodologies for antenna evaluation.
Communication Satellite Antennas begins with an overview of the parameters that characterize antennas, and goes on to cover the antenna designs, technologies, and system architectures required for communication satellite systems. Techniques to mitigate interference are covered, and the processes used in the development and characterization of antenna systems are reviewed. Discover how to:
Adhere to the system parameters used to quantify antenna performance
Understand the technologies used in wide coverage, earth coverage, narrow coverage, and array antennas
Work within standard communication satellite system architectures and orbital alternatives
Address propagation limitations and link performance
Implement reliable antenna interference mitigation techniques
Develop space segment antennas, including spot beam, multiple beam, adaptive uplink, active aperture, and point-to-point antennas
Apply user segment technologies, such as reflector antenna technology, antenna sidelobe control techniques, and adaptive interference cancellation systems
Evaluate satellite antennas and systems using rigorous methodologies
Basic Economics: A Citizen's Guide to the Economy
At last there is a citizen's guide to the economy, written by an economist who uses plain English. No jargon, no graphs, no equations. Yet this is a comprehensive survey, covering everything from rent control and the rise and fall of businesses to the international balance of payments.The purpose of Basic Economics is to enable people... Formation Testing: Pressure Transient and Contamination Analysis
Traditional well logging methods, such as resistivity, acoustic, nuclear and NMR, provide indirect information related to fluid and formation properties. The “formation tester,” offered in wireline and MWD/LWD operations, is different. It collects actual downhole fluid samples for surface analysis, and through...
Increase Your Web Traffic in a Weekend
These days, everyone seems to have a home page or a Web site. However,
just because you create and publish a Web site doesn’t mean anyone will
visit it. Competition to attract visitors is extreme. The reality is that of the
millions of Web pages out there, only a handful actually attract a steady
readership; and these... Methods of Demographic Analysis
This book provides an up-to-date overview of demographic analysis and methods, including recent developments in demography. Concepts and methods, from the nature of demographic information through data collection and the basics of statistical measures and on to demographic analysis itself are succinctly explained. Measures and analyses of...
