As the full impact of the age of computers and automation reaches the maritime industry in the 1970's, ship designers will inevitably become acutely aware of special needs associated with shipboard electronics systems. In order to cope with these needs, they must be conversant with and sympathetic to the problems of marine electronics design personnel. This tutorial paper presents, in an easily understood non-analytical manner, the principles of communication by radio waves, with particular emphasis on problems inherently created by the shipboard environment. State-of-the-art techniques in a number of communications/information/navigation areas including earth satellites are discussed.
