Weekly Seminar: “Parameter estimation and synchronization in digital satellite receivers”

ABSTRACT: In contrast to terrestrial communication systems, satellite-based solutions offer some remark- able benefits: they are quickly deployed, services are provided to equal costs within the whole coverage zone, and they form a key element for ubiquitous access on a worldwide level. Only via a satellite-based infrastructure one can connect isolated regions, like polar or [...]
