About the course

Taught by a diverse panel of industry experts, government technologists and academics, the comprehensive course syllabus is designed to provide the most relevant, industry-standard technical training for the professional satcom engineer.

The course programme runs across five days and includes industry-focused projects enabling you to put knowledge into practice straight away.

The course structure has been designed to lead the participant through each topic in a logical and accessible sequence bringing even the new entrant into the industry, up to speed with today’s technology. Course places are limited to ensure your learning needs are fully met.

Benefits of attending the Satcoms course

  • Satellite systems planning and a thorough understanding of link budgets and QoS design:
    • Identify modulation and encoding techniques for optimised performance of satcoms systems;
    • Understand link budgets to assist you to sell the service products and better understand what is achievable in terms of quality of service.

  • Spacecraft engineering and operation including antennas and payload design - better position yourself to work for satellite manufacturers that design spacecraft and the payload (plus support communication services hosted on it).

  • Earth station design and satellite applications including access techniques and IP over satellite - so you will be able to achieve the highest (optimised) throughput, customer traffic and select the most appropriate access techniques for a given application to enable applications to work more efficiently; You will also understand better the key parts of ground stations and be better placed to select the most suitable equipment for each applications.

  • Networks and system design, current commercial and military use as well as likely future trends - gain a better appreciation of the core principles, techniques and knowledge required to design complete end-to-end systems. Take away the essential tools and skills to enable you to work across a wide spectrum of terminal manufacturers, platform vendors, satellite providers and network operators.
