Military and Commercial Satellite Communications Training

It’s no secret that civilian and military operations increasingly rely on space-based satellite communications.

Authorities in this area believe that being able to protect and defend the assets is critical to both military and to the day-to-day running of the modern economy.

Increase in Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous systems and rise in demand for military and defense satellite communication solutions are expected to drive the global satellite communication market growth at least through 2027.

Additionally, technological advancements in satellite missions and deployment of 5G network through satellites are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market in the future.

However, cybersecurity threats to satellite communication and interference in satellite data transmission are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market over the next half dozen years.

The satellite communication market is segmented into application, component, end-use industry and region. Based on the application, the market is segmented into voice communication, broadcasting and data communication. Based on component, it is further divided into equipment and services.

Military forces increasingly use space-based assets like satellite communications to fulfill their mission.

These technologies have become especially vital for communications networks – ensuring users always are connected and ready for the growing amount of data to be collected and disseminated on the ground, in the air and in orbit.

Military satellite communications play a crucial role on the theater of operations and must take into account the needs of tactical users.

Critical communications between Command Centers and operational forces On-The-Move call for systems that are reliable, available and secure.

With the transition to connected collaborative combat, satellite communications are the only way to guarantee long-range connectivity, strongly shortening the decision process to a few seconds, and giving a major tactical and decisive advantage over the enemy.

Today’s armed forces rely on space-based assets for reconnaissance, weather tracking, communication, navigation and more. The U.S. Air Force regularly launches GPS and missile-defense tracking satellites, and operates two classified X-37B robotic space planes.

Like commercial satellite communications providers, the Department of Defense is also looking for new modes of technology to modernize its satellite communications programs.

Military and Commercial Satellite Communications Training Course by Tonex

Military and Commercial Satellite Communications Training, SATCOM Technology and Networks Training Course is a 5-day advanced satellite communications technology, network course.

Tonex SATCOM Training programs provide a full range of training options that include classroom training as well as optional hands-on operation of equipment and systems. Our integrated training programs reinforce formal or theoretical training with practical training. Practical training serves to bridge the student’s experience from the theoretical to the practical and also serves to reinforce the original formal classroom training.

Military and Commercial Satellite Communications Training, SATCOM Technology and Networks Training program is designed to enable the participants  to properly analyze, design, operate  and maintain SATCOM and VSAT systems.

SATCOM Technologies develops its training materials based on Military and Commercial Standards, Data Item Description and best practices.

Whether you are a technical or management professional, you can turn to this highly understandable and comprehensive satellite technology, applications, and management course: Military and Commercial Satellite Communications Training.

Learn about Satellite Communications systems engineering as applied to satellite communications, model based systems engineering (MBSE), SysML, SDR, explanations of all aspects of analyzing, designing, building and using a satellite systems, and discussions on digital communications and processing in modern military and commercial satellite systems and networks.
