  • Military Satellites

    Military satellites provide a wide range of services including communication services, intelligence gathering, weather forecasting, early warning, providing navigation information and timing data and so on. This chapter presents an overview of military satellites. It describes the various types of military satellites. The chapter also describes the salient features and current status of major international military satellite systems in each of the categories. Protected satellite systems serve the nuclear capable forces. Defence Satellite Communication Systems, DSCS satellites are US military communication satellites providing high security data and voice communication services to the US Department of Defense (DOD). The Globus series of satellites represent second generation of Russian military communication satellites, replacing older Raduga satellites. MILSTAR (Military Strategic and Tactical Relay) is a tactical and strategic multiservice satellite system designed to provide survivable communication services for US forces worldwide.

  • Navigation Satellites and Navigation Payload

    The technology of navigation satellites develops toward the direction of relying on the ground less and less to ones where orbital data is obtained by Doppler measurements on the ground, and then ground user positions itself with the Doppler measurements. Global positioning system (GPS) has developed to a level independent of ground support for 180 days. The navigation payload is the main one related to the navigation accuracy and integrity, and also a direct device for implementing the navigation target. In particular, on‐board autonomous integrity and good on‐board response of ground integrity channel (GIC) are important development requirements gradually recognized by people; however, the current level is low with weak measures. The GLONASS navigation satellite has experienced two generational developments, and the first generation is the current GLONASS satellite in operating orbit. The second generation GLONASS‐M satellite is in the testing stage and through downlink test will replace the first‐generation network satellite.

  • 11 European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites

    The European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) was formed in 1986 to take responsibility for operation of European weather satellites. Prior to the organization's creation, these satellites had been operated by the European Space Agency and data was shared freely in accordance with meteorological and research community norms. However, EUMETSAT's creation corresponded with increasing efforts among national meteorological agencies to recover costs through commercial sales of data and products. To enable these activities, EUMETSAT quickly moved to restrict access to its own data, adopting both legal and technical restrictions. EUMETSAT worked to gain acceptance for these more restrictive policies in international fora, particularly the WMO.

  • 10 US Defense, Intelligence, and Commercial Satellites

    In the United States, commercial remote sensing satellite development has been closely tied to activities in the defense and intelligence sector, and these developments have in turn affected civil Earth observation satellite development and data sharing policies. As would be expected, sharing of reconnaissance and commercial satellite data has been much more limited than sharing of civil Earth observation data. However, there have been numerous examples in which archived reconnaissance data has been declassified and made broadly available, and there have been sustained efforts to broaden access to commercial satellite data purchased by US intelligence agencies, making this data accessible to all government agencies and their affiliated researchers. Further, many commercial entities have engaged in data sharing of their own volition, in projects designed to increase awareness and usefulness of their products or to address acute humanitarian needs.

  • Military Satellites

    Military satellites provide a wide range of services including communication services, gathering intelligence data, weather forecasting, early warning, providing navigation information and timing data.

Some of the advanced concepts in military satellite system that may become a reality in the next decade are also discussed in the chapter.

  • Weather Satellites

    Use of satellites for weather forecasting and prediction of related phenomena has become indispensable. This chapter looks at various aspects related to evolution, operation and use of weather satellites. Weather forecasting satellites take images mainly in the visible, the infrared and the microwave bands; the various types of images are discussed in the chapter. Most weather forecasting satellites employ a geostationary orbit, as different from a polar sun‐synchronous low Earth orbit, since these satellites offer better temporal resolution as compared to that provided by the polar weather forecasting satellites. The chapter discusses two types of satellite payloads namely, radiometer and active payloads. It also discusses some of the major applications of weather forecasting satellites, and covers some of the major weather satellite missions.

  • Introduction to Satellites and their Applications

    This chapter briefly discusses the different stages of evolution of satellites and satellite launch vehicles, beginning with the days of hot air balloons and sounding rockets of the late 1940s/early 1950s to the contemporary status. The horizon of satellite applications has extended far beyond providing intercontinental communication services and satellite television. A large number of satellites were launched for meteorological studies, navigation, surveillance and Earth observation during the 1960s. The chapter shows the classification of satellites based on wet mass, the mass of the satellite including fuel. The technological advances in the field of satellites will be directed with an aim of reducing the cost and size of the satellites as well as improving the quality of the services provided. One of the main technological trends is to develop satellites with a longer mission life.
