Communication Satellite Systems Engineering can be divided into several widely disporate fields - 1) the design of the communications transponder, 2) the space platform around to carry it, 3) a launch system for placing it into orbit, 4) the earth stations for communicating and, 5) the interconnection lines with terrestrial systems. Each of the chapters of this book tries to give the systems engineer a broad understanding of these different elements of the system and their relationship to each other.
