Satellite Communications Primer
This course will provide practical technical and regulatory fundamentals of satellite communications and services. The training will focus on the technical basis and characteristics of satellite architecture and operations, signal and applications management, and frequency use. In addition, this course will explore regulatory aspects associated with satellite communications, including international policy and regulations, frequency assignments and allocations, coordination issues, spectrum management policies, and the regulation of satellite communications and services. The course will also provide a fundamental understanding of satellite transmission technologies, as well as an overview of satellite applications. Work will focus on the state of technology development and the practical implementation of satellite services, including the integration of digital applications and hybrid, end-to-end solutions. Smaller subgroups will allow trainers to cater to different levels of pre-existing technical expertise during the hands-on session.
Participants will become aware of the range of technical and regulatory issues associated with satellite communications and services, including technological developments related to satellite transmission and reception techniques. The focus of this course will be on developing an understanding of the fundamentals that impact the global satellite industry, the state of development of present and future satellite applications, and technical challenges applicable to the satellite industry. This course is oriented toward managerial and technical staff seeking to gain a better technical understanding of the working methodologies of satellite communications, including application development, as well as policy and regulatory issues affecting satellite communications and spectrum management.
