Volume One of the Wireless Communications Design Handbook provides an in-depth look at interference problems in satellite communications. The material presented is from a satellite or spacecraft hardware point of view rather than from theoretical models. Each satellite subsystem is described in detail to point out interference and noise problems associated with it. The book also addresses typical architectures and hardware design issues in satellites. In addition, a detailed look at space interference is discussed with emphasis on the possible impact on satellite electronics.

About Reinaldo Perez

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.
