Information, communication, and space technology by Mohammad Razani

By Mohammad Razani

Many books have coated the speedily evolving fields of information and verbal exchange technology (ICT) and space technology individually. although, no unmarried publication has ever excited about how the mixing of those components is making a more desirable platform for varied medical advancements―including a little analysis paintings that can not be played on the earth.

To fill the void, Information, communique, and house Technology presents a singular representation of that connection. Dividing content material into sections that hide ICT, current and destiny area applied sciences, and satellites, the writer demonstrates the person and mixed energy of every of those elements of the final method. He explores how the combo of thoughts from every one of those interrelated fields is growing vast power for broader advances in components resembling robotics, communications, navigation, agriculture, well-being care, and nanotechnology. The e-book introduces specific capability thoughts, together with "rocket-less" spacecraft launches, and improvement of a world approach to stability power distribution through the use of satellites that might gather solar power and transmit it through microwave beams to various destinations all over the world.

Equally important to scholars and pros, this paintings is a fruits of the household and overseas adventure that the writer has got all through greater than 3 many years as an teacher and researcher. Emphasizing the robust have to include ICT and house expertise into the overall collage curriculum, the booklet starts off with easy causes of key innovations and theories, construction towards extra concrete, application-oriented examples that show the significance and impression of latest applied sciences. This contains assurance of the way satellites move voice, video, and different info throughout continents, in addition to suggestions used to acquire very-high-resolution photos from area to be used in agricultural and environmental sciences.This well timed paintings employs a logical, virtually established procedure that may support readers to raised comprehend present and rising ICT and area applied sciences, together with the newest advancements and achievements within the field.
