Tutorial A
Ground Systems for Satellite Operations Primer & Acquisition Considerations
Length:
Full Day
Fee:
$300
Time:
8 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.
  Tutorial Detailed Objectives
Increased awareness and understanding of:
    Major functional areas within Ground Segments
    Interrelationship between major functions
    Modes of operations
Become familiar with a systems engineering view of ground systems
Gain exposure to common ground system elements and subsystems
    The relationship between different ground system elements and subsystems
    The relationship between the functionality and the elements and subsystems
Develop an acquirer's view of ground systems throughout the life cycle with focus on the special characteristics of ground systems for requirements, design, and verification phases
Gain an appreciation for the wide variety of issues that must be addressed during the placement and design of ground systems
Be able to name the considerations in addressing each of the key issues and the describe interplay among them where appropriate
Become exposed to the types of tools that are available within Aerospace and the industry that allow the designer to address specific technical trades and the interplay among two or more design factors

(The tutorial will not cover launch.)
