Communications Systems Design

Bob Gough has been involved in the design and development of a wide range of communications systems for different applications. Satellite-based applications include :

  • Trunk telephony & data
  • Thin route telephony & data
  • Television distribution
  • Television broadcast to home
  • Television uplink feeds
  • Data broadcasting
  • VSAT and VoIP systems
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
  • Meteorological data dissemination
  • Maritime communications
  • Aeronautical communications
  • Defence communications

Each of these applications places different demands on the system design engineer, and different access and modulation & coding schemes are usually required in each case.

A large amount of detail on the many design, development and projects undertaken by Bob and his team already exists on Bob’s personal website under https://satellitespy.net/experience. Rather than duplicate all of that here you can explore it on that website.

Note that extensive use has been made of mathematical modelling and computer simulation, and these are Bob’s favourite areas.
