Advanced Communications

Module code: EG7217

The module briefly covers the basic physical concepts required to calculate whether communication is possible between two locations and then applies this knowledge to understand the basics of modern applications of radio-wave technology. Although some mathematical derivations are presented, these are not required in the exam and the coursework makes extensive use of ready-made Matlab models.

Topics include

  • Digital and analogue modulation
  • Loss, noise and decibels
  • Antennas
  • Diffraction, reflection and multipath
  • Empirical models and the power margin
  • Radar
  • Satellite Comms
  • Cellular telephony
  • Satellite Navigation systems
  • Networks
