Satellite Signal Propagation, Impairments and Mitigationcovers issues related to satellite link design. The book develops every concept from elementary physics, covering the basics of signal propagation from Maxwell's equations and then gradually developing the physical reasons for impairments.

It emphasizes the unique concepts for each involved process, based on their physics, and explains how they form the determining factors for the related suitable engineering technique for mitigation. Every basic principle is followed by mathematical substantiation with an explanation of the physics behind the equations.

  • Covers the basics of signal propagation, starting from Maxwell's equations and then gradually developing the physical reasons for the impairments
  • Includes different important propagation experiments conducted and detailed in the Appendix
  • Employs the power of MATLAB® as both a visualization and problem-solving tool
  • Provides MATLAB scripts for simulation exercises
