It examines the expansion of the market despite the emergence of optical fibre as a low cost transmission medium for high grade, high volume terrestrial communications. This includes the large number of countries that own satellites for their domestic communications and the new market for private telephone and data transmission as well as the role of satellites in maritime, road and aircraft communication. It looks at the design of the radio link to the technology used within the orbiting satellite and the construction of the satellite base station. These aspects are described and illustrated by reference to the various satellites currently in use or to be launched.
