Satellite Technology: Advanced Course

This course provides a complete and well-rounded overview of artificial satellite technology, which provide invaluable resources for a multitude of applications. We can use satellites to aid in providing solutions that humanity faces, which as you already know, are quite considerable. They include, but are not limited to, deforestation, natural resources management, wildlife preservation, and maritime security.

 You will be presented with the necessary technical knowledge on how each satellite subsystem works such as payload, communication, onboard computer, propulsion, and more. We will discuss the pros and cons of different subsystem equipment, how they work, different acquisition methods, and most importantly how to optimally select equipment based on mission requirements through the systems engineering part. We will also go over different types of orbits and the necessary orbital elements associated, and what types of applications will require which orbits.

In the course, we will cover the following subjects:

1. Introduction to the Space Field
2. Types of Satellites
3. Astrodynamics
4. Launch Vehicles
5. Space Missions Design
6. Satellite Subsystems
7. Satellite Payloads
8. Satellite Applications
9. Standards and Regulations

Finally, you will be able to apply and demonstrate your knowledge and skills in space mission design and optimization through quizzes associated with various subjects. On top of that you will have a chance to produce a high-level mission design as an assignment after the end of the course.

About Instructor

My name is Karim Garad. I have been passionate about space since a very young age. My passion was fueled by my family gifting me subscriptions to magazines and courses, and I was certainly amazed by images of nebulae and galaxies taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. I pursued my interests until university where I studied Aerospace Engineering and received a fully funded scholarship from the UK Space Agency to continue. I have been working in the Aerospace industry since university and I am currently working in my country's national space agency on top of other personal ambitious projects. As a mechanical design and testing engineer, I am engaged in projects with worldwide space agencies and organizations such as NASA, Airbus, and the United Nations.
