Most books in wireless communications address technical subjects which are relevant to ground mobile systems. Volume 2: Terrestrial and Mobile Interference of the Wireless Communications Design Handbook addresses a topic frequently overlooked in ground mobile wireless system design: interference problems at the hardware level. This book employes a hardware-oriented approach, which is the most effective approach for addressing interference and noise problems in ground mobile wireless systems. The book is a practical reference for engineers who are particularly interested in practical case studies covering how to avoid undesired interference and noise problems in their designs. It covers some of the most common interference models usually addressed, and it describes material related to transmitter and receiver hardware design and how interference control plays a significant role in equipment performance. Each of the three Wireless Communications Design Handbook volumes addresses theory and immediate applications. Design issues are also considered in detail for the protection of wireless ground systems against interference.

About the author (1998)

Reinaldo Perez is Senior Engineer and Member of the Technical Staff at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. For the past three years, Dr. Perez has also been working with Lockheed Martin Astronautics (LMA) on the Mars Surveyor series. His primary work has been as a designer of spacecraft (or satellite) subsystems and ground support hardware for increased reliability in space environments, focusing on wireless communications hardware with built-in immunity to many kinds of noise and interference problems. He is a senior member of the IEEE, AIAA, and AIP, and serves as a board member of the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES). In addition, Dr. Perez is an associate editor of the IEEE EMCS Journal, as well as Editor of the ACES Newsletter.
