Evolution of Microwave Technologies for Communication Satellite Systems



The commercial era of satellite communication systems started with the launch of Intelsat IV Satellite in 1971. It spurred unprecedented R & D activities in diverse areas such as launch vehicles, new materials, microwave technologies, solar cells. Communication via satellites has become an integral niche in the provision of telecommunication services worldwide. Satellites are unique in their capability to provide ubiquitous, seamless, and global communications systems. This lecture provides a brief history of the evolution of satellite communications systems, describes some of its unique features, its operating environment and architectures and advances that have taken place, with emphasis on the evolution of microwave technologies. The talk concludes with a discussion of telecommunication services best suited for satellite systems in the face of competition from cellular and fiber optic terrestrial networks.
