This two-day Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials Training course, a complement to “Satellite Communication Systems Engineering,” is designed to give engineers and managers who need to prepare or amend applications and licenses for communication satellite systems an understanding of domestic (FCC and NTIA) and international (ITU) radio regulations, rules, requirements and recommendations to bring such systems into operation.

All necessary information and the forms for submission to the appropriate bodies to bring stations or complete systems into operation will be described and discussed and will be provided to participants in the form of handouts or by specific references to publications or internet websites, to enable participants to comply with current requirements.

  • 2 days of Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials Training with an expert instructor
  • Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials Electronic Course Guide
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee



Upon completing the Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials course, the participant will be able to:

  • How to understand the portions of the ITU Radio Regulations, and the FCC Rules and requirements pertaining to satellite systems.
  • How you can participate in the process of changing the FCC’s Rules, and the ITU’s Recommendations affecting satellite systems, and the frequency bands in which they can operate.”
  • How to prepare and file applications for satellite systems with the FCC.
  • How to prepare and submit information to the ITU to gain international recognition and protection for satellite systems.
  • What changes in the domestic and international rules, regulations, regulations, policies and procedures are likely in the coming years. From this Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials Training course you will supplement the knowledge and abilities you have gained as a satellite communications systems engineer so that you will be able to bring such systems into operation in conformity with the domestic and international regulations.
  • We can adapt this Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials 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 Satellite Communication Regulatory Essentials course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
