This year the SatNEx School will be focused on a specific and very actual topic, i.e. High Throughput Satellites (HTS), both in GEO and LEO orbits and features highly qualified speakers from Industry, Research and Academia. The program will cover all key aspects of the design of HTS, from mission and service requirements to antenna and payload technologies, routing, ground segment design and air interface considerations. Moreover, a dedicated session on emerging optical technologies and a conclusive session with examples of suitable system design approaches will round up a program which is meant to provide young researchers, PhD students, but also professionals approaching the topic of HTS, with advanced knowledge and all the tools which are required to conceive and design Very High Throughput Satellite Systems. The program will also include a visit to the Labs of Graz University of Technology with an overview of their 3 Nanosatellite-Missions (TUGSAT, OPS-SAT and PRETTY) and to the Hilmwarte Tower where JOANNEUM RESEARCH operates its Q/V-Band Ground Station. Last not least, all registered participants to the School can also access free of charge the first morning of the ASMS/SPSC conference, where top-level keynote speeches will take place.
