This book discusses global mobile satellite communications (GMSC) for maritime, land (road and rail), and aeronautical applications. It covers how these enable connections between moving objects such as ships, road and rail vehicles and aircrafts on one hand, and ground telecommunications subscribers through the medium of communications satellites, ground earth stations, Terrestrial Telecommunication Networks (TTN), Internet Service Providers (ISP) and other wireless and landline telecommunications providers. The new edition covers new developments and initiatives that have resulted in land and aeronautical applications and the introduction of new satellite constellations in non-geostationary orbits and projects of new hybrid satellite constellations. The book presents current GMSC trends, mobile system concepts and network architecture using a simple mode of style with understandable technical information, characteristics, graphics, illustrations and mathematics equations. It represents telecommunications technique and technology, which can be useful for all technical staff on vessels at sea and rivers, on all types of land vehicles, on planes, on off shore constructions and for everyone possessing satellite communications handset phones. The first edition of Global Mobile Satellite Communications (Springer, 2005) was split into two books for the second edition - one on applications and one on theory. This book presents global mobile satellite communications applications. Prof. Stoj?e Dimov Il?ev is Chair of Research and Postgraduate Studies in Space Science and CNS at Durban University of Technology (DUT), Durban, South Africa. He studies both maritime radio engineering and nautical science at Montenegro University in Kotor, maritime electronics and communications at Rijeka University in Croatia, postgraduate satellite engineering at Skopie University in Macedonia and Belgrade University in Serbia. Prof. Il?ev holds Bachelor (BSc), Master in Electrical Engineering (MSc) and Doctor of Science (PhD) degrees. He also holds the certificates for Radio operator 1st class (Morse), for GMDSS 1st class Radio Electronic Operator and Maintainer and for Master Mariner without limitations. Since 1969, Il?ev worked onboard merchant ships, in Satellite Earth Station, at Coast Radio Station, shipping company, Nautical School and at Maritime Faculty. Since 2000, he worked at IS Marine Radio and CNS Systems companies on research and projects relating to modern Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) for maritime, land and aeronautical applications. He has written three books on CNS engineering and systems for maritime, land and aeronautical applications and he has many projects and inventions in this field including DVB-RCS and Stratospheric Platforms.
