Because of the immense importance of signal processing and the fastgrowing demands of business and industry, this series on signal processing serves to report up-to-date developments and advances in the field. The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following.
I hope this series will provide the interested audience with high-quality, stateof-the-art signal processing literature through research monographs, edited books, and rigorously written textbooks by experts in their fields.
- Signal theory and analysis
- Statistical signal processing
- Speech and audio processing
- Image and video processing
- Multimedia signal processing and technology
- Signal processing for communications
- Signal processing architectures and VLSI design

Satellite communication is one of the most impressive spin-offs from space programs, and has made a major contribution to the pattern of international communications. The engineering aspect of satellite communications combines such diverse topics as antennas, radio wave propagation, signal processing, data communication, modulation, detection, coding, filtering, orbital mechanics, and electronics. Each is a major field of study and each has its own extensive literature. Satellite Communication Engineering emphasizes the relevant material from these areas that is important to the book’s subject matter and derives equations that the reader can follow and understand.
The aim of this book is to present in a simple and concise manner the fundamental principles common to the majority of information communications systems. Mastering the basic principles permits moving on to concrete realizations without great difficulty. Throughout, concepts are developed mostly on an intuitive, physical basis, with further insight provided by means of a combination of applications and performance curves. Problem sets are provided for those seeking additional training. Starred sections containing basic mathematical development may be skipped with no loss of continuity by those seeking only a qualitative understanding. The book is intended for electrical, electronics, and communication engineering students, as well as practicing engineers wishing to familiarize themselves with the broad field of information transmission, particularly satellite communications.

I once knew this girl who thought she was God.She didn't give sight to the blind or raise the dead. She didn't even teach anything, not really,and she never told me anything I probably didn't already know. On the other hand,she didn'texpect to be worshipped, nor did she askfor money. Given her high opinion of herself, some...
I remember talking in 1995 with Bob Staton, CEO of Colonial Life
& Accident Insurance Company, a division of UNUM, about the
lack of leadership throughout the company. Colonial was one of
the few large, homegrown companies in Columbia, South Carolina,
when it was acquired by UNUM, the Maine-based disability insurance...
