Aimed at a high level fundamental understanding of broadcasting, communication and navigation satellite systems. Topics: Orbital mechanics, orbit selection, spacecraft subsystems, spacecraft and earth station configurations, propagation issues, link budgets, modulation and multiplexing techniques, multiple access schemes (FDMA, TDMA, CDMA), error control coding, satellite network architecture, and economic, regulatory and business issues in GEO, MEO, and LEO systems.
This unique course (3 graduate credit hours) will cover topics in mission planning, operations, communications, and management with an emphasis on how technical, legal, and business factors influence the commercial execution of these aspects of space missions; and will provide opportunities to apply and understand the context of the technical aspects of spaceflight in real-world applications.
Content for this course has been assembled with extensive industry support from partners including Sierra Nevada Corporation, Virgin Galactic, United Launch Alliance, SpaceX, and Blue Origin, as well as government support from NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration; and will be taught collaboratively between the Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences, the Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program, and supporting industry guest lectures.
Commercial Spaceflight Operations and Communications is available to both degree and non-degree students on the campus or via distance. Those interested in taking this course via distance education for credit or professional development should contact the Center for Advanced Engineering and Technology Education (CAETE) at firstname.lastname@example.org or find more details online at http://cuengineeringonline.colorado.edu/distance-delivery .
