ECET 252 - Marine Communications


Credits: 3 Total Hours: 82.5
Students will study analog voice and data communications as used in the marine industry. They will learn standard modulation technologies such as AM, FM, and Single Side Band (SSB) applied to radio frequency (RF) signals with a focus on their use in marine radio. Students will analyze these signals in the time and frequency domains using standard techniques. RF propagation over air and via transmission lines will be addressed. A focus will be placed on certain technologies important to the marine environment such as GPS (Global Positioning System) and DSC/GMDSS (Digital Selective Calling/Global Maritime Distress and Safety System). Students will make extensive use of RF test equipment, including spectrum analyzers and simulation techniques during lab exercises.
