How is the book organised?
The first chapters are dedicated to the properties of electromagnetic waves, their propagation theory and how they can be used to carry information from a transmitting station to a receiving station.
The subsequent chapters cover the implementation of radio waves in aviation, analysing onboard equipment and transmission systems positioned both on the ground and in space. These sections begin from the most basic devices up to the most advanced and recent technologies, such as the satellite navigation system and area navigation.
