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.

  • Communication Satellites

    This chapter discusses communication satellites with emphasis on the underlying principles, the application potential and the contemporary status of these application areas. Telecommunication satellites provide a varied range of services mainly including television and radio broadcasting, international telephony and data communication services; most of these services are multipurpose in nature. The bands of interest for satellite communications lie above 100MHz including the VHF, UHF, L, S, C, X, Ku and Ka bands. Transponder is the key payload of any communication satellite. A brief outline on the basic satellite communication link set‐up is given in the chapter. The chapter provides a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of communication satellites with terrestrial networks. Various satellite missions are broadly classified into three categories namely, international, regional and domestic systems; these systems are described in the chapter. The chapter ends with a discussion on the future trends in the field of communication satellites.

  • Scientific Satellites

    Scientific satellites provide space‐based platforms to carry out fundamental research about the world we live in, our near and far space. This chapter begins with a discussion of satellite‐based versus ground‐based scientific techniques, and goes on to describe the various types of payloads that are carried by the scientific satellites. It discusses the scientific applications of satellites covering in detail the contributions made by these satellites to Earth sciences, solar physics, astronomy and astrophysics. Major scientific satellite missions launched beyond the solar system namely, the Hubble space telescope (HST), Compton gamma ray observatory (CGRO), Chandra X‐ray observatory and the Spitzer space telescope (SST) are described in the chapter. Several satellite experiments have been launched to carry out research in the fields of microgravity, cosmic rays and fundamental physics. The chapter ends with a discussion on the future trends in the field of scientific satellites.

  • Remote Sensing Satellites

    Satellites play an important role in remote sensing. This chapter discusses various topics related to remote sensing satellites including their principle of operation, their orbits, payloads on board and their use to acquire images, processing and analysis of these images using various digital imaging techniques and interpreting these images for studying different features of Earth for varied applications. It gives a descriptive view of these above‐mentioned topics with relevant illustrations wherever needed. Passive sensors record the amount of electromagnetic radiation reflected and/or emitted from the Earth's surface, and do not emit any electromagnetic radiation. In active sensor systems, the transmitter emits electromagnetic radiation of a particular wavelength band, depending upon the intended application. Three major remote sensing satellite missions namely, the Landsat, SPOT and Radarsat satellite systems, are also described in the chapter.

  • 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.

  • High Throughput Satellites

    This chapter reviews the industry evolution to the high‐throughput satellite (HTS) era, and describes the key technology areas and performance elements, which are expected to define the communications satellite industry into the next several decades. The move to the HTS generation of satellite communications has provided a significant increase in data handling capacity and throughput for all primary satellite communications services, fixed satellite service (FSS), broadcast SS (BSS), and mobile SS (MSS). The fundamental addition in the architecture of the HTS compared to earlier generations is the use of multi‐beam antennas to provide coverage to the service area, rather than the individual wide beams or spot beams of earlier satellites. The chapter discusses the anticipated role of satellite technology in 5G cellular, and presents a brief overview of the evolution of cellular mobile technologies through previous generations that will provide a useful perspective on how satellite networks will fit into the 5G telecommunications infrastructure.
