This cutting-edge, new resource clearly presents introductory and advanced concepts in telemetry systems, with an emphasis on digital communications. The book helps you perform link analysis for the design of a communications link, create a FM/FM preemphasis schedule systematically to develop an algorithmic code to perform this function, and design PCM/FM telemetry systems to meet a specific BER and bit rate.
