IET Satcoms 33rd course edition was delivered in September 2018 and provided up-to-date technical training for technicians, engineers, business professionals and students.

The industry-standard course programme presented a comprehensive overview of satellite communication technology and applications, so delegates could learn practical skills required for design engineers, such as fundamentals of link budgets; spacecraft and earth hardware design & engineering including antennas; payload and earth station engineering; networks and system design, current commercial and military use as well as likely future trends.

The lecture sessions were complemented by a choice of industry-focussed project exercises undertaken in groups at the end of the course to make theory applicable to practical industry tasks.

IET Satcoms continues to offer the most thorough technical groundings in satellite communications engineering available in the market and will return in 2019.
