    Satellite Communication Systems Training Course

    Short course (Belgium) by European Space Agency (ESA) · Free · Current

    Living in a world without global connectivity seems nowadays unlikely, just think about how big secure communication, satellite broadcasting, search and rescue and mobile networks are. Satellite Communication technologies empower us to navigate with precision, explore the cosmos, monitor Earth's changes, provide healthcare remotely, optimize transportation logistics, disseminate knowledge widely, and ultimately propel innovation and societal progress across multifaceted dimensions. It is of utmost importance to foster a more resilient and safer connectivity system for the Europe of tomorrow. Through lectures and short exercises, students will learn about topics such as End-to-End Satellite Communication Systems Principles, Antenna Systems, Telecommunications Market, Optical Systems and Technologies, and Satellite Communication Applications. They will also have the opportunity to have a guided tour of the ESEC in Redu and will thus be able to figure out what they have learned on-site.
