    The use of satellite systems in the implementation of third-generation mobile communication systems obviously involves a propagation environment for the signal different from that in the conventional terrestrial first- and second-generation systems. The propagation conditions and phenomena met with are embraced by the expression `land mobile satellite (LMS) channel'. This paper reviews the studies... View full abstract»

    For pt.1 see ibid., vol.8, no. 4, p.185-94 (1999). Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are widely used in electronic equipment and systems. Application of good EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) practices to their design usually helps to achieve compliance with EMC regulations at much lower cost than alternative EMC measures at higher levels of integration, and also improves signal integrity. This pape... View full abstract»

    For many decades television engineers have dreamt of `the TV on the wall'. The display engineer has always answered, `maybe in about ten years time'. However now, for the first time, there is more than one technology offering a real possibility that the large, thin, flat television display will become a reality. There are three flat-panel technologies to consider: active matrix liquid crystal, pla... View full abstract»

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data provide unique information about the Earth's surface and biodiversity, including critical data for natural hazards and resource assessments. The ability to calculate the cross-section of a scatterer for any transmit and receive polarisation combination provides detailed information about vegetation for assessing changes in land cover, biomass and forest regrowth...
