VSAT Tutorials, Satellite Communications Tutorials and Further Education

Main Tutorial Index

VSAT stands for Very Small Aperture Terminal which is basically a small satellite antenna (less than or equal to 4.5m diameter) as opposed to a large antenna. The word terminal refers to the fact that the antenna is attached to a system that can transmit and receive through the antenna to and from a satellite. The following tutorials will help you understand and guide you through the basics of satellite communications and the related areas up to a working level of knowledge suitable for attending further courses or education.

The courses have been designed to be worked through in order but also to be taken ad hoc if you just need some quick information. Each course has a link to the next so that you can work through without having to keep going back to the index.
