Abstract:

This thesis is a tutorial on digital signal modulation techniques used in satellite communications and includes computer simulation of those digital signal modulation techniques introduced. The purpose of the thesis is to introduce digital signal modulation techniques and through the use of computer simulation, generate statistics which represent the characteristics of the FFT for the respective signal type. Further, an analysis of the statistics of the FFTs was conducted to determine if there is any relationship between the components of the FFT of the different signals. The statistic used to investigate this possible relationship was the F-distribution. The computer simulation was written and conducted in the FORTRAN programming language. A copy of the program, results of the simulation and the statistical analysis conducted are included in the appendices. Author.
