Terrestrial and Satellite Radio Links

The course is not on the list Without time-table
Code Completion Credits Range Language
A2M17PDS Z,ZK 6 2+2c Czech
The course is a substitute for:
Propagation of Radiowave and Frequency Manage (X17SIR)
Lecturer:
Tutor:
Supervisor:
Department of Electromagnetic Field
Synopsis:

The goal of the course is to teach the student to design basic types of wireless links from the antennas and propagation point of view, including interference analyses for both fixed links and radio networks and frequency coordination. The design principles are primarily based on international ITU-R recommendations. In addition, the attention is given to prospective wireless systems as well, e.g., intelligent antenna systems.
