ATI's Remote Sensing Satellites course


Share |

Summary:

    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

      This course is for those who need to understand new trends in remote sensing for smaller, cheaper, easier-to-launch satellite systems. Emphasis is on down-size sensors and spacecraft for small launchers like Pegasus or Taurus. The course starts with basic concepts of passive and active sensing. The pros and cons of various orbits and the launch and propulsion techniques to attain them are explained. Typical sensor designs, operational features, and constraints are discussed for low-cost, low-weight LANDSAT-type sensors. Data storage and transmission factors as cost drivers are discussed. Small spacecraft platform design choices are explained with illustrative examples for structure, power, thermal, data communications, attitude control, and propulsion subsystems; emphasizing miniaturization and commercial methods. The all-important issue of sensor ground data processing is also covered. The course concludes with a description of current US and foreign systems and newer initiatives.

      This course is presented by top experts in satellite remote sensing systems, with many years of hands-on experience. It is recommended for management and technical people who wish to enhance their understanding of engineering concepts and applications of remote sensing systems and the economics of new technologies to produce smaller satellites and sensors.
