As laser technology draw increasing attention from the satellite industry, Applied Technology Institute (ATIcourses) is ready with a specialized program designed for individuals interested in this new frontier in wireless communications. The course is aimed at engineers, scientists and other professionals grounded in traditional radio-frequency communications who want to be prepared as optical technology grows in prominence as a way to transmit data.

The program will provide an overview of the differences and similarities between laser- and RF-based communications. The class will train participants in how to design, implement and optimize laser communications systems, and will focus on the specific challenges laser-based communications systems must overcome to connect hardware in space and on the ground efficiently and reliably. Upcoming sessions are scheduled for February 25-27 and April 28-May 1, 2014, in Columbia, MD.

The course will be taught by Dr. Hamid Hemmati, supervisor of the Optical Communications Group at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), where he has worked since 1986. Before joining JPL, Dr. Hemmati worked at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology. He specializes in the use of laser technology for space-based communications and is the editor and author of two books about optical communications.
