Overview

The first in a series of three volumes, Space Interference provides an in-depth look at interference problems in satellite communications. Presented from an applied satellite or space craft-oriented point of view, rather than from the theoretical models perspective, each satellite subsystem is described in enough detail to point out the interference and noise problems associated with it. Structured to allow those involved in satellite-based wireless communications systems design to address practical interference problems at the hardware level in the early stages of the design and development process, this hardware-oriented approach will prevent interference issues from rising to levels that could affect satellite performance in the later stages of development, where costs and schedules are of primary concern. Satellite engineers will be able to obtain a comprehensive view of interference concerns that arise at each subsystem development.

Audience: Engineers, practitioners in the field, graduate courses in wireless communications in electrical engineering and computer science.

Examines interference problems in satellite communications from an applied satellite or space-craft perspective rather than from theoretical models. Describes each satellite subsystem in enough detail to identify the interference and noise problems associated with it, and to allow engineers to address the problems at the hardware level in the early stages of designing and developing communications systems, when costs and schedules are not yet of primary concern. Combines basic interference fundamentals with advanced topics. The other volumes consider system-level noise in ground-fixed and mobile systems, and problems within the electronics of wireless communications devices.

Meet the Author

Reinaldo Perez is Senior Engineer and Member of the Technical Staff at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. For the past three years, Dr. Perez has also been working with Lockheed Martin Astronautics (LMA) on the Mars Surveyor series. His primary work has been as a designer of spacecraft (or satellite) subsystems and ground support hardware for increased reliability in space environments, focusing on wireless communications hardware with built-in immunity to many kinds of noise and interference problems. He is a senior member of the IEEE, AIAA, and AIP, and serves as a board member of the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES). In addition, Dr. Perez is an associate editor of the IEEE EMCS Journal, as well as Editor of the ACES Newsletter.
