Mobile Satellite System Design

  • Nick Hart
Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 222)


This Chapter examines satellite-based mobile networks from a system designer’s point of view. It first describes how mobile satellite communication networks are evolving. Systems such as those operated by Inmarsat offer global coverage. Some countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Australia, are developing their own national or regional mobile satellite systems.
