This two-day course is structured to provide in-depth coverage of Satellite engineering principles. The course is oriented to fulfill the needs of Systems Engineers and technical staff with SATCOM experience and/or training. Emphasis will be placed on Orbital mechanics and Antenna implementations for military and commercial environments and it will provide an understanding of frequency allocations and ITU regions.
*** Course Prerequisite: Systems Engineering - Introduction.
Topics will include:
- Orbital descriptions and elements
- Orbital geometry
- Ephemeris computations
- Look angles
- Solar conjunctions
- Gain, loss, noise theory
- Antenna theory
- Antenna design (parabolic and phased array)
- Off-axis emissions
