    Introduction to Satellite Communication is designed to meet the needs of working professionals and students. The first edition was a response to a request by many friends and associates for a basic and clear book that provides newcomers with an accessible way to gain knowledge and become productive. The second edition. published articles and photographs pertaining to the Echo satellite. Other items of note include the report on a visit to British electronics laboratories by J. R. Pierce and H. D. Hagstrum, , and a transcript of a visit with H. G. Wells, Access Terms Borroff, Marie. Pierce, John R. (John Robinson),

    artificial satellite, object constructed by humans and placed in orbit around the earth or other celestial body (see also space probe).The satellite is lifted from the earth's surface by a rocket and, once placed in orbit, maintains its motion without further rocket propulsion. The first artificial satellite, Sputnik I, was launched on Oct. 4, , by the USSR; a test payload of a radio. Satellite Communications book.

In this interview he recalls his undergraduate education at Caltech in the late twenties and early thirties, the early years at Bell, radar work during the war, and the beginnings of America’s satellite program.

Abstract: This paper provides an introduction to the classic paper "Transoceanic Communication by Means of Satellites," which was written by J.R. Pierce and R. Kompfner and appeared in the March issue of the Proceedings of the IRE.

This paper also provides a periscopic view of satellite communications development since then. Surprisingly, in some aspect, the fundamental ideas have.

I read this book as a reference rather than a formal class textbook. As a self-studying student, the first book I bought to study satellite communications was the famouns 'Digital Satellite Communications' ritten by Dr. Tri t. It is actually a quite good book. However it was just too much for a eginner.

At Pierce's insistence, AT&T filed in for permission to launch an experimental communications satellite. Although embraced by the Eisenhower administration, when the Kennedy administration came to power in January this decision made some senior officials s: 1.

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.Much of the technology for communications satellites existed inbut would be improved with time.

The basic communications component of the satellite was thr traveling-wave-tube (TWT). These had been invented in England by Rudoph Kompfner, but they had been perfected at Bell Labs by Kompfner and J.
