Satellite technology has become a flexible and cost effective solution for domestic and international networks irrespective of user’s geographic location. Satellite technology can become a solution for some of the most complicated access problems connecting cities across a large land mass and ‘ringing ‘road’and to the last mile of residences and businesses. With regard to space technology, reliability and miniaturization with minimum power consumption being the prime considerations, requires a kind of special techniques. Reduction of power and weight being the major consideration for any satellite system, emphasis is on to develop various sub-systems of the satellite by optimizing size, weight and power consumption. Developing applications, keeping reduction of cost and size with higher efficiencies is vital to maximizing the benefits.
