Space Communications Systems: Fundamentals and Analysis

Course #SS3610

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


Same as EO3510. With a focus on satellite communications/SIGINT, this course provides an understanding of the basic elements of a communications system and their relationship to system performance. Fundamental concepts such as current/voltage relationships, time and frequency domains, power spectral density, random signals, and communications system components and functions are covered. Following development of the signal to noise equation, system performance will be analyzed with respect to various design characteristics such as modulation, bandwidth and power trade]offs, and the use of spread spectrum techniques.
