Military satellite communications
market and technologies
The military satellite telecommunications market (MilSatCom) has grown exponentially over the past 15 years, sustained in part thanks to Middle Eastern conflicts.
The first part of the course offers learners an overview of the MilSatComs segments, its main players and future trends. Learners will then discover how to identify and scale the components of a military satellite network. The second part of the course will focus on MilSatCom technologies used to maintain Transmissions Security (TRANSEC) and Communications Security (COMSEC). Learners will be able to identify potential causes of signal interruption, recognize intentional interference cases, and select the most relevant technologies to ensure the integrity of their satellite communications.
The course lasts 2 days (12 hours).
Theoretical course illustrated with real cases, videos and practical examples from recent MilSatCom current affairs.
Course level: Advanced
Basic training in satellite-based telecommunications (signals, modulation, coding) is desirable to fully benefit from this course (graduate-level university or engineering school).
