    “computers” or “ice cream.” While these may be important‚ they are definitely not the most important. By far‚ satellites are the most important objects today. Most everything‚ including smartphones and computers‚ are present today because of satellites and have capabilities such as Wi-Fi and 4G because of the role satellites play. Even Socrates‚ who lived centuries before the first satellite‚ realized the importance of a view from space when he said‚ "Man must rise above the Earth…to the top of the

    Communication Satellites Introduction Communications Satellites have been around since 1958. A communications satellite is a spacecraft that orbits the Earth and relays messages‚ radio‚ telephone and television signals. Stations on the ground‚ called earth stations‚ transmit signals to the satellite‚ which then relays the signal to other earth stations. As a newer form of communications‚ communications satellites are very useful in bringing the people in the world together. Communications between

  • Artificial Satellites

    Artificial satellites are those put into orbit by man. Equipment on a satellite is hardened to survive in the radiation and vacuum of space. Since there is no air in space and therefore no air resistance‚ satellites come in many shapes and sizes. Types of Satellites and their Uses We use satellites for different purposes and all satellites can be placed in one of the following categories: Communications Satellites Distribution of television and audio signals‚ and telephone connections via satellite

    Subject : Introduction to satellite (SCM01D4) Introduction Eclipses can only occur when the Sun‚ Earth‚ and Moon are all in a straight line. Solar occur at new moon‚ when the Moon is between the Sun and Earth and in contrast‚ lunar eclipses occur at full moon‚ when Earth is between the Sun and Moon. The apparent size of the Moon is roughly the same as that of the Sun‚ with both being viewed at close

    SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS - AN OVERVIEW INTRODUCTION The outer space has always fascinated people on the earth and communication through space evolved as an offshoot of ideas for space travel. The earliest idea of using artificial satellites for communications is found in a science fiction Brick Moon by Edward Evert Hale‚ published in 1869-70. While the early fictional accounts of satellite and space communications bear little resemblance to the technology as it exists

  • Satellite Communications

    History of Satellite Communications The first idea of satellite communication came from an article in 1945 named Wireless World‚ where Author C. Clarke described the use of manned satellites in 24 hour orbits to distribute television programs. However‚ the first person to carefully evaluate the technical and financial aspects of such a venture was John R. Pierce of Bell Telephone Laboratories (Whalen‚ n.d.). In a 1954 speech and 1955 article‚ Pierce described the usefulness of a communications

    equatorial plane of the earth such that a satellite appears to hover over a fixed point on the equator. The period of revolution is equal to the period of rotation of the earth with respect to the stars‚ or 23 hours 56 minutes 4.1 seconds‚ and thus by Kepler’s third law the orbital radius is 42‚164 km. Taking into account the radius of the earth‚ the height of a satellite above the equator is 35‚786 km. Clarke observed that only three satellites would be required to provide communications
