About this book

This book presents principal structures of space systems functionality of meteorological networks, media and applications for modern remote sensing, transmission systems, meteorological ground and users segments and transferring weather data from satellite to the ground infrastructures and users. The author presents techniques and different modes of satellite image interpretation, type of satellite imagery, spectral imaging properties, and enhancement of imaging technique, geo-location and calibration, atmospheric and surface phenomena. Several satellite meteorological applications are introduced including common satellite remote sensing applications, weather analysis, warnings and prediction, observation and measurements of meteorological variables, atmosphere and surface applications, ocean and coastal applications, land, agriculture and forestry applications, and maritime and aviation satellite weather applications. The author also covers ground segment and user segment in detail. The final chapter looks to the future, covering possible space integrations in meteorological and weather observation.This is a companion book of Global Satellite Meteorological Observation Theory (Springer), which provides the following topics:

  • Evolution of meteorological observations and history satellite meteorology
  • Space segment with satellite orbits and meteorological payloads
  • Analog and digital transmission, type of modulations and broadcasting systems
  • Atmospheric radiation, satellite meteorological parameters and instruments
  • Meteorological antenna systems and propagation

About the authors

Professor Stojče Dimov Ilčev is Chair of Space Science Centre (SSC) for Research and Postgraduate Studies in Space CNS for Maritime, Land and Aeronautical Applications, Global Satellite Augmentation Systems (GSAS), GNSS Systems, Satellite Tracking Systems, Mobile Broadcasting and Meteorological Observation Systems at Durban University of Technology (DUT), Durban, South Africa. He studies both Maritime radio engineering and Nautical science at Montenegro University in Kotor, Maritime electronics and communications at Rijeka University in Croatia, Postgraduate satellite engineering at Skopie University in Macedonia and Belgrade University in Serbia. Ilčev holds Bachelor (BSc), Master in Electrical Engineering  (MSc) and Doctor of Science (PhD) degrees. He also holds the certificates for Radio operator 1st class (Morse), for GMDSS 1st class Radio Electronic Operator and Maintainer and for Master Mariner without limitations. Since 1969, Ilčev worked onboard merchant ships, in Satellite Earth Station, at Coast Radio Station, shipping company, Nautical School and at Maritime Faculty. Since 2000, he worked at IS Marine Radio and CNS Systems companies on research and projects relating to modern Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) for maritime, land and aeronautical applications. He has written five books on CNS engineering and satellite systems for mobile applications and he has many projects and inventions in this field including DVB-RCS standards and Stratospheric Platforms.
