ISBN 978-1580534901

This comprehensive review of the rapidly expanding satellite communications industry is organized into the four fundamental areas that most concern application developers and users. Its 11 chapters fall neatly into the areas of business and technical basics, broadcasting, two-way interactive services, and business and regulatory matters. The book draws upon Elbert's three decades of communications experience at Hughes, COMSAT, Western Union, and the U.S. Army Signal Corps; it evolved from his series of satellite communication seminars and UCLA Extension course and was designed to be a textbook for a technical or business course.
