Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A textbook presenting introductory and advanced concepts of telemetry systems to student and practicing telemetering and telecommunication engineers. Digital communications is the primary thrust, and details of system design are emphasized within the context of the overall system. M-ary communications systems and link analysis are the main topics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Booknews
Introduces concepts of telemetering systems for new engineers, and presents existing and potential design procedures for both new and seasoned telemetry engineers. Coverage encompasses bandwidth requirements for various modulation formats, design procedures for time division and multiplexing systems, and combining analog and digital modulation systems. A chapter on design of FM/FM systems converts the preemphasis schedule procedure into a straightforward algorithmic code. Includes problems, a glossary, and b&w diagrams. Annotation c.
