Course Description

Please note that theUniversityofSurreyreserves the right to update and alter these courses – please check our website for updates

Through a series of intensive lectures and a hands-on project the course aims to:

  • Provide an in-depth treatment of satellite communication systems operation and planning.
  • Provide in-depth understanding of modern satellite multiple access, modulation and coding schemes.
  • Review the state of the art in new research areas such as speech and video coding, satellite networking and satellite personal communications.


Delegates should leave the course with a knowledge of:

  • Link budgets & planning
  • Modulation, coding & multiple access
  • Digital audio/video broadcasting
  • Satellite Personal Communication Systems
  • Satellite Networking


Plus a good all round idea of current and emerging systems and technologies for the future.

Because the course also gives emphasis to the theoretical aspects of the subject delegates will gain a comprehensive understanding of the field. Consequently they will be better placed to apply their knowledge to the workplace.

Price per person, including lunch, refreshments and printed course notes is £1750 for early bird payments received by 16 March 2018, the early bird rate for IET Members (proof of membership needed) is £1650 for payments received by 16 March 2018.
