Satellite Communications: Commercial and Military Satellite Training Course hands-on Exercises (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

Satellites are a key component of the world’s communications infrastructure. For anyone involved with telecommunication and IT, understanding this technology is a fundamental requirement.  In this Satellite Communications: Commercial and Military Satellite Training course you will learn both the technology and applications of satellites ranging from the early Sputnik to today’s advanced nano-satellites with optical laser links.

We will review the satellite system components as well as the satellite deployment process from the launch to the in-orbit operation. Finally, we will study how to design a satellite network and select the proper components. In short, you will learn everything from A to Z for a comprehensive review of this important technology.

Duration: 2-3 days
