What the ESA TIA website CAN do for you
For the purpose of supporting contractual activities in the ARTES Programme Lines, the Agency can provide, on a best effort basis and free of charge, access to a pool of Technical Assets for use by different projects. These technical assets include DVB-RCS Internet Access, Satellite Capacity as well as Access to ESA's DVB Uplink facilities and Local Area Network.
The ARTES online Satcom Training System is free of charge and offers three levels of knowledge, from basic information for non-technical personnel to advanced for expert graduate engineers who need to expand their knowledge outside of their fields. Each level contains tutorials on SATCOM Technologies, System and Services, Communication Link, Space Segment, Networking and Earth Segment. These categories are further divided into more detailed specialist areas and include some exercises at the end.
