Satellite Communication 1 In general terms, a satellite is a smaller object that revolves around a larger object in space. For example, moon is a natural satellite of earth. We know that Communication refers to the exchange (sharing) of information between two or more entities, through any medium or channel. Satellite communication systems [Book Reviews] July IEE Review.

These books are used by the students to get a good fundamental knowledge. 1. “Satellite Communication” by D.C. Agrawal and A. K. Malini 2. “Satellite Communication” by T. . Satellites provide in-flight phone communications on airplanes, and are often the main conduit of voice communication for rural areas and areas where phone lines are damaged after a disaster. Satellites also provide the primary timing source for cell phones and pagers. Satellite communication - Satellite communication - How satellites work: A satellite is basically a self-contained communications system with the ability to receive signals from Earth and to retransmit those signals back with the use of a transponder—an integrated receiver and transmitter of radio signals. A satellite has to withstand the shock of being accelerated during launch up to the. Data communications involve the transfer of data from one point to another. Corporations and organizations that require financial and other information to be exchanged between their various locations use satellites to facilitate the transfer of data through the use of very small-aperture terminal (VSAT) networks.

Fixed Service Satellites (FSS) Communication to non-moving satellites. Generally Earth Station is not moving when in use. Low Cost Tracking antennas are making communication on the move a reality Types of service Video: Broadcast: Television network distribution Satellite News Gathering (SNG). Voice: Telecommunications traffic / connecting cells. Explanation: Communication satellites are not originators of information to be transmitted. If a transmitting station cannot communicate directly with one or more receiving stations because of line-of-sight restrictions, a satellite can be used.   Satellite communication with wireless devices using OMNET++ simulation tool. I have created 5 mobile devices and set their behavior in file. They show mainly 2 . Satellites communicate by using radio waves to send signals to the antennas on the Earth.
