Handbook of Satellite Applications


Welcome to the homepage of Handbook of Satellite Applications, a comprehensive reference work from Springer.

The Handbook of Satellite Applications will be the complete guide to Satellite Communications, Remote Sensing, Navigation, and Meteorology.

Our objective is to create an internationally based and authoritative reference work about every aspect of space applications under the auspices of the International Space University.
