"Mr. Mazzei is clearly an expert. I enjoyed his real world experience [and] anecdotes mixed in with the technical aspects of the course."
This course qualifies for Continuing Education Units.
Note: This course follows a two day offering of Military Satellite Communications in a Net-Centric Communications World, February 11-12, 2014. For details on the MILSATCOM class: http://www.afcea.org/education/details.cfm?course_number=302-14-SDCA-1

Course Description:

Commercial Satellite communications make up the majority of current and planned military and government communications systems and enhance Net-Centric Warfare. This adjunct provides a review of the evolution of fixed satellite systems, mobile satellite systems and personal systems such as Iridium and Globalstar.  It illustrates how the military is dependent on commercial systems for infrastructure communications as well as for surge capabilities and immediate emergencies and contingencies. It also illustrates how commercial systems, unlike military systems must survive in the market place rather than be developed through multi-year programs managed by robust program offices.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND


The commercial adjunct is designed for those desiring a complete view of military communications systems and their use of the variety of assets and architectures available in the commercial marketplace. A general background in communications is not necessary.
