Satellite Communication Systems

Satellite Communication Systems. Instructor: Prof. Kalyan Kumar Bandyopadhyay, Department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering, IIT Kharagpur. Satellite communication is a form of wireless communication that covers large area and long distance using satellites as repeaters. Course prerequisite is digital communication. In this course the participants will get the basic technical knowledge of orbital dynamics, subsystems used in space segment and ground segment, power and bandwidth requirement, effect of the transmission medium, other impairments and techniques to mitigate them, regulatory aspects and standards, and some value added examples.
