Short Course in Satellite Communications and Navigation (new content!)


ESA’s Directorate of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications (TIA) is once again co-organising with University of Oxford’s Department for Continuing Education a short course in satellite communications for professionals. The course, which was a great success the previous years, will offer a comprehensive introductory overview of satellite communications and navigation. 


The objectives of the course are to provide a complete overview of the world of satellite comms, including:

  • satcoms in the telecoms world
  • satcoms systems architecture, characteristics and performance
  • markets and business aspects of satcom systems and services
  • satcoms commercial potential and evaluating potential opportunities
  • satellite navigation systems and services (new for 2018)

The target audience are graduates and young professionals with an engineering and/or financial background as well as senior professionals wishing to expand their background knowledge of satcom systems and services.

The course will be given by specialists from ESA in conjunction with leading specialists from Thales Alenia Space, Inmarsat, Avanti, Airbus, Eutelsat, SES and Newtec, thereby offering course participants the opportunity to network with potential customers and/or recruits.
