Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a follow-up to the award-winning first edition and is written as a comprehensive guide for those who need to obtain a working knowledge of radiowave propagation on satellite-to-ground links at frequencies above 1 GHz and as a reference book for experts in the field. To accomplish this, expanded sections of explanatory text, copiously illustrated, enable an undergraduate or non-specialist to grasp the fundamentals involved. An extensive reference list permits the expert to go to the source material should the level of enquiry go beyond the level of this book. The book is broken down into chapters that deal with the major propagation phenomena classes. After a broad introductory chapter, there are extensively updated chapters on ionospheric effects, clear air effects, attenuation effects and depolarisation effects. New chapters on mobile communications effects and optical communications effects are followed by a chapter on restoration of performance during impairments.

Book News Annotation:

Electrical engineer Allnutt (computer forensics, George Mason U.) has spent most of his career working in satellite communications. Here he updates his 1989 book, published by Peter Peregrinus Limited, to incorporate the many and radical changes in both the technological and the commercial aspects of the field. He covers radiowave communications between Earth and space, ionospheric effects, clear-air effects, attenuation effects, depolarization effects, mobile satellite service propagation effects, optical communications propagation effects, and restoring performance during signal impairments. Books from the UK's Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), IEE, and Inspec are distributed in the US by Books International. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
