Unlock New Frontiers: Discover Available Courses in Space Technology, New Space Economy, & Space Law!
The course discusses various subjects on satellite positioning technology and receiver design, such as signal acquisition and tracking, measurement errors, and integration with INS.
One of ECSL’s most successful activities is the ECSL Summer Course on Space Law and Policy, which is open to students of all levels of study, as well as a few young professionals already working in space or space-related sectors
The course starts with going through the various applications where navigation technologies are utilized in autonomous systems followed by going through the different navigation technologies and their pros and cons in details. Autonomous systems need to have means to typically answer the questions Where am I?, What is around me?, Where is my destination?, What is the best way to reach my destination while avoiding local obstacles? and the technologies that can answer these will be introduced. In addition to details of the technologies, also their security and privacy are emphasized. After introducing the technologies, mathematical models, sensor fusion approaches and related simulation techniques are included. Students will also learn about open source software packages relevant for navigation technologies in autonomous systems. Finally, everything introduced will be brought to practical applications with case studies where students get to experiment with relevant data.
Wireless communication has progressed exponentially in all dimensions during the last decade. We are now quite close to the ultimate limit of the information transfer rate which is known by Shannon capacity. Telecommunication becomes part of almost all branches of technical and nontechnical life. Besides its main application in connecting people either over voice or media communication as well as social networks, it offers also important human-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. For example, the 5G network provides high data rates, ultra-reliable, and very small latency wireless connection, therefore, it will be part of future industry and automation.
This course is designed mainly for students without a necessary deep background in telecommunications. The course focuses on the fundamentals and concepts of telecommunications, telecommunication systems, and applications.
