Satellite Communications Design and Engineering Training Workshop

This three-day Satellite Communications Design and Engineering Training Workshop are designed as a practical course for practicing engineers and is intended for communications engineers, spacecraft engineers, managers, and technical professionals who want both the “big picture” and a fundamental understanding of satellite communications. The Satellite Communications Design and Engineering Training Workshop is technically oriented and includes examples from real-world satellite communications systems. It will enable participants to understand the key drivers in satellite link design and to perform their own satellite link budget calculations. The course will especially appeal to those whose objective is to develop quantitative computational skills in addition to obtaining a qualitative familiarity with the basic concepts.

What’s Included?
  • 3 days of Satellite Communications Design and Engineering Training with an expert instructor
  • Satellite Communications Design and Engineering Course Guide
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
