    This book chronicles the worldwide development of communication satellites over a period of more than four decades. Descriptive text and tabular data are presented for experimental and operational satellites of communications and broadcasting systems of both individual nations and international organizations. Introduction to Satellite Communication A communication satellite is an R.F (Radio Frequency) repeater. To overcome disadvantage of Line of sight communication which is only 45 - 55 km, the transmitting antenna is placed on the satellite and the satellite is .

    Reviews. The author provides a better understanding of the history of space, space exploration and space-related activities while explaining its various applications within three major categories: application satellites, scientific satellites, and communication satellites. This revised book introduces what is on the horizon that the next generation could benefit from the . Molniya orbiting satellites are more commonly used for telephone and TV services over Russia because of their high latitude capabilities. They are also used for mobile radio systems, even at lower latitudes, because cars traveling in the presence of tall buildings need access to satellites at high elevation to secure the signal.

      Satellites are crucial in providing communication for a wide variety of purposes: * So-called “spy satellites” provide us security by identifying potential trouble spots in time for us to react. * Communication satellites give us the capability of. propagation and sky wave propagation. Satellite communication overcomes this limitation. In this method, satellites provide communication for long distances, which is well beyond the line of sight. Since the satellites locate at certain height above earth, the communication takes place between any two earth stations easily via satellite.

Satellites can be divided into five principal types: research, communications, weather, navigational, and applications. Research satellites measure fundamental properties of outer space, e.g., magnetic fields, the flux of cosmic rays and micrometeorites, and properties of celestial objects that are difficult or impossible to observe from the earth.
