               Satellite Communication System Course Outline

Course Objectives:

This course is designed to provide a comprehensives understanding of
satellite communications principles and related technologies involved.
Starting from orbital mechanics related to spacecraft deployment, the course
evolves through satellite link design, signal processing and access techniques,
type of networks and finally drawing conclusion with performance and
reliability of the system. Applications of Satellite communication (e.g. Direct
Broadcast Satellite TV, Satellite Mobile, Satellite based Internet and ATM
services, GPS) will also be covered.
