Satcoms 2015 (photo)

20 - 25 September 2015 | Milton Hill House, Oxford, UK

Satellite Communication Systems is an industry-standard course designed to aid an in-depth understanding of technical topics within the context of a comprehensive overview of satellite communications.


Now in its 30th successful year, the course provides relevant and up-to-date technical training for the professional satcoms engineer.


Experienced presenters provide valuable insight into both principles and practice of satcoms, with each session presented by a leading expert in their field, drawn from across industry, government and academia. The lecture sessions are complemented by a choice of project exercises undertaken in small groups during the week.


The course is structured to develop understanding in a progressive fashion, ranging from the underlying principles of link budgets and transmission through to state-of the art in modern systems, such as Ka-band services.

"Probably the best multi-day course I’ve been on... Thanks to all involved in organising it!"

"Great programme! A lot to think about and hopefully to look forward to in my exposure to satellite communications.”

“Excellent interaction with the highly experienced presenters.”

"I found the project to be a very engaging and practical application of the theory learnt."

The course seems very well balanced. It takes attendees from the basics of the subject through to the applications and gives a good grounding in the technical and operational issues."

"Good, dynamic and informative sessions. The use of simplified examples enhanced the learning."
