JPL spacecraft antennas-from the 1st Explorer satellite tv for pc in 1958 to present R & D
Spaceborne Antennas for Planetary Exploration covers the improvement of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) spacecraft antennas, starting with the 1st Explorer satellite tv for pc in 1958 via present study and improvement actions geared toward destiny missions. Readers persist with the evolution of the entire new designs and technological recommendations that have been constructed to satisfy the starting to be calls for of deep house exploration.
The ebook makes a speciality of the radio frequency layout and function of antennas, yet covers environmental and mechanical issues to boot. there's also an intensive therapy of all of the analytical and size suggestions utilized in layout and function evaluation. every one bankruptcy is written via a number of major specialists within the box of antenna technology.
The presentation of the heritage and expertise of spaceborne antennas is aided by means of numerous features:
* photos and drawings of JPL spacecraft
* Illustrations to assist readers visualize thoughts and designs
* Tables highlighting and evaluating the functionality of the antennas
* Bibliographies on the finish of every bankruptcy resulting in quite a few fundamental and secondary resource material
This e-book enhances huge Antennas of the Deep area community (Wiley 2002), which surveys the floor antennas coated in help of spacecraft. jointly, those books thoroughly conceal all JPL antenna know-how, in accordance with the JPL Deep house Communications and Navigation sequence challenge to seize and current the numerous techniques in deep house telecommunications over the last decades.
This e-book is an engaging and informative learn for all participants operating in or attracted to deep area telecommunications.Content:
