Spacecraft Operations
Spacecraft operations online course gives you a detailed overview on how to plan, prepare and perform spacecraft operations. Many operational aspects are addressed including the relevant tools and procedure, all aspects of satellite operations and corresponding ground segment design too.

This short, intensive and specialized space course provides students engineers and professionals the know-how, skills and expertise needed to work in Spacecraft operations related fields. If you want to acquire valuable knowledge about specific points, in-depth theory and examples of practical cases with the best lecturers in the sector you came to the right place. Scroll down to know more.

During 12 hours of live sessions with Industry experts you will dive deep into fundamental aspects to succeed in this industry, such as:


  • The mandatory requirements and constraints of the fairings and the last-mile systems (where satellites have to be integrated) and the conditions to which the satellites are submitted during the Pre-Launch and Launch Phases
  • The operational conditions to which the Spacecrafts are subject while operating in orbit
  • An overview of Systems Engineering with focus on operations showing how products and tools are used by satellite operators, how they plan their interaction with the spacecraft and how they validade their procedures
  • Introduction of the communication elements between a Space-Ground link
  • Show actual procedures used during real operations

Modules:

  • Pré & Launch Vehicle Environment
  • Spacecraft Operational Environment
  • Systems Engineering and Spacecraft Operations
  • Communication Segments
  • Flight Experience Knowledge and Current Challenges
