This is the first book primarily about the satellite payload ofsatellite communications systems. It represents a uniquecombination of practical systems engineering and communicationstheory. It tells about the satellites in geostationary andlow-earth orbits today, both the so-called bent-pipe payloads andthe processing payloads. The on-orbit environment, mitigated by thespacecraft bus, is described. The payload units (e.g. antennas andamplifiers), as well as payload-integration elements (e.g.waveguide and switches) are discussed in regard to how they work,what they do to the signal, their technology, environmentsensitivity, and specifications. At a higher level are discussionson the payload as an entity: architecture including redundancy;specifications--what they mean, how they relate to unitspecifications, and how to verify; and specification-complianceanalysis (“budgets”) with uncertainty. Aspects ofprobability theory handy for calculating and using uncertainty andvariation are presented. The highest-level discussions, on theend-to-end communications system, start with a practicalintroduction to physical-layer communications theory. Atmosphericeffects and interference on the communications link are described.A chapter gives an example of optimizing a multibeam payload viaprobabilistic analysis. Finally, practical tips on systemsimulation and emulation are provided. The carrier frequenciestreated are 1 GHz and above. Familiarity with Fourier analysis willenhance understanding of some topics. References are providedthroughout the book for readers who want to dig deeper. Payload systems engineers, payload proposal writers,satellite-communications systems designers and analysts, andsatellite customers will find that the book cuts their learningtime. Spacecraft-bus systems engineers, payload unit engineers, andspacecraft operators will gain insight into the overall system.Students in systems engineering, microwave engineering,communications theory, probability theory, and communicationssimulation and modelling will find examples to supplementtheoretical texts.

This book targets major issues in terrestrial-satellite communication networks and presents the solutions. While the terrestrial networks can achieve high-speed data service at low cost, satellite based access is one way to complement terrestrial based networks to ensure ubiquitous, 100% geographic coverage. The coexistence and cooperation between terrestrial and satellite networks are of great potential in future communication networks, and satellite radio access networks has already been considered in the fifth-generation (5G) networks to be supported for phase 2. Therefore, it is important to study the architectures of terrestrial-satellite networks, as well as the possible techniques and challenges. The authors introduce the technique of beamforming in satellite communication systems, which is an efficient transmitting method for multiple access, and they discuss the main challenges as well as prospective applications. The authors introduce possible methods for interference cancelation reception in terrestrial-satellite communication networks when reusing the frequency band between the two networks. Due to the limitation of spectrum resources, spectrum sharing will become one of the important issues in terrestrial-satellite communication networks. The problems of spectrum coexistence between GEO and Terrestrial Systems and between GEO and NEGO systems are also discussed. Finally, taking both the two system into consideration, the resource allocation problem will be more complex due to the coupling between resources and the interference. Based on this, the authors propose several resource allocation schemes in different scenarios of terrestrial-satellite communication networks, which can optimize the capacity performance of the system. The expected audience for this book includes (but not limited to) graduate students, professors, researchers, scientists, practitioners, engineers, industry managers, and government researchers working in the field of satellite communications and networks.
