The IET Satcoms course delegates receive one of the most thorough technical groundings of the satellite communications engineering available on the market.
Delegates should leave the course with a knowledge and understanding of:
- Modulation, coding & satellite access techniques
- Link budget planning
- VSAT architectures
- Spacecraft, payload, earth station engineering, design and operations
- Applications: TCP/IP
The lecture sessions are complemented by a choice of industry-focussed project exercises. You will be able to choose your preference upon registration.

Project presenter: Daryl Jones, Airbus Defence and Space
The project explores the outline design of a satellite communications payload with a simple transponder and the spacecraft antennas.
The exercise is to choose suitable configurations to meet the specification, including mass, gain, G/T, EIRP, linearity, and reliability.
Earth station design
Project presenter: David Bookham, Consultant Engineer
The task is to design the complete SHF/IF chains of a Ku-Band Satellite earth station.
A variety of technical specifications of equipment, including antennas, will be provided from which the combination can be selected and the station designed.
