SATCOM Training – Satellite Communications Training:

SATCOM Training or Satellite Communications Training Course with Hands-On Exercises (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

This three-day Satellite Communication Training Essentials course reviews the essential elements of all satellite communications systems, with an emphasis on system design and performance. The objective is to inform new engineers and other professionals as well as those knowledgeable in specific technical and business areas by covering the technical characteristics of each aspect of the space and ground system, and showing how they relate to each other.

The fundamental connection is the radio link between the satellite and the earth station, which is covered in detail. The basic design of the satellite and earth station are covered to identify primary elements of each and to compare alternatives that have been and continue to be employed in real systems. These include geostationary satellites and non-geostationary constellations that are currently in development.

Satellite Communications Training Essentials cover the following topics:

  • Satellite Communications Training Essentials: Satellite Systems, Services, and Regulation
  • Satellite Communications Training Essentials: Technical Fundamentals
  • Satellite Communications Essentials: The Space Segment
  • Satellite Communications Essentials: The Ground Segment
  • Satellite Communications Essentials: The Satellite Earth Link
  • And More…
