    Potential satellite markets in the public safety (disaster relief, emergency medical, and law enforcement) and common carrier (mobile radio telephone) service areas are identified. The public mobile telephone segment is then examined to illustrate a methodology for identifying a potential satellite addressable market, including capacity requirements for roughly sizing a satellite. It is postulated... View full abstract»

    A digital modulation system with compact spectrum and constant envelope is proposed, based on the results of theoretical and experimental studies. This modulation system is suitable for digital mobile communication, which generally is subject to deep and rapid fading. It is characterized with a possibility of practical and stable instrumentation. In the modulator, modulation signal parameters are ... View full abstract»

    A technique is given for determining the error-rate performance of a class of digital communication systems operating with fading multipath interference. The approach uses a truncated series to represent the fading process and takes into account the effects of intersymbol interference caused by linear filtering in the receiver or channel. Application of the method to the cases of minimum shift key... View full abstract»

    A novel diversity technique is suggested for mobile communications. It depends upon the radiation patterns of the used antennas. The relation between the radiation patterns and the correlation coefficient is worked out. Theoretical predictions are shown to have good agreement with the experiment. View full abstract»

    A statistical method is developed for analysis of interference in land mobile communications systems. Reduction of communication range and degradation of system reliability are calculated. This method can be used for cases in which a desired signal is transmitted by a base station (or mobile unit) and received by a mobile unit (or base station) and is interfered with by a signal transmitted either...

    A monostatic Doppler radar can yield accurate vehicle speed measurements over a very limited angular extent. When applied to a multilane superhighway geometry, the area within which the vehicle must be confined for accurate measurement becomes quite small. A much larger area yielding accurate measurement can be achieved by designing the radar system for bistatic operation. In this geometry the tra... View full abstract»

    A describing-function approach is employed in the design of an antiskid braking system. This includes the specification of the dynamics of a braking vehicle, a proposed system employing a feedback compensator to provide antiskid behavior, and the determination of the design parameters by a describing-function analysis. A wide range of tire-roadway conditions was considered in the latter. The resul... View full abstract»
