Satellite Communications Training for Non-Engineers


Satellite Communications Training for Non-Engineers Course by Example

Satellites are a key component of the global communications infrastructure, including technically advanced and developing countries alike. It’s the only telephony and broadband wide-area network technology that’s available everywhere, from the concrete jungles to the rain forests. For anyone involved with telecommunication and information technology, understanding this technology is a fundamental requirement.

In this Satellite Communications Training for Non-Engineers 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. You will learn how a program manager plans resources and schedules for a successful deployment of a satellite VSAT network. At the end of this one-day Satellite Communications Training for Non-Engineers course, you will have acquired a comprehensive overview of this technology from the technical and managerial perspective.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
