Ground Segment

A ground segment consists of all the ground-based elements of a space system used by operators and support personnel, as opposed to the space segment and user segment. The ground segment enables management of a spacecraft, and distribution of payload data and telemetry among interested parties on the ground. The primary elements of a ground segment are:

  • Ground (or Earth) stations, which provide radio interfaces
  • Mission control (or operations) centers, from which spacecraft are managed
  • Remote terminals, used by support personnel
  • Spacecraft integration and test facilities
  • Launch facilities
  • Ground networks, which allow for communication between the other ground elements

Space Segment

The space segment of an artificial satellite system is one of its three operational components (the others being the user and ground segments). It comprises the satellite or satellite constellation and the uplink and downlink satellite links.

The overall design of the payload, satellite, ground segment, and end-to-end system is a complex task. Satellite communications payload design must be properly coupled with the capabilities and interaction with the spacecraft bus that provides power, stability and environmental support to the payload.

Schemes for Higher Education Youth for Apprenticeship & Skills(AI & IoT)

Silent features:

Add-on Apprenticeship

The students who are currently completing the degree programme would be invited to choose a job role of their choice from a selected list of apprenticeship job roles given by the Sector Skill Councils of the MoSDE. The apprenticeship programme is normally about (6) months and would be prefixed by basic training regarding the sector (theory). The programme would commence immediately after completion of the degree programme (Starting from May each year). During the apprenticeship period, the student would get a monthly stipend of about Rs. 6,000 per month by the industry. At the end of the apprenticeship period, there would be a test conducted by the Sector Skill Council concerned and successful students would get skills certificate in addition to their degree certificate.

Embedded Apprenticeship

Under this approach,the existing B.Vocprogrammes would be restructured into B.A (Professional), B.Sc (Professional) or B.Com (Professional) courses - which would include not only educational input, vocational input, but also a mandatory apprenticeship ranging from 6 to 10 months depending on the requirement of the skill. For example, a BBA course in Logistics would have one semester of classroom teaching and the next one as apprenticeship. Alternatively, one full semester of an existing degree or B.Voc course would be dedicated to apprenticeship with industry.

During the apprenticeship period, the student would get a monthly stipend of about Rs. 5,000 per month by the industry, 25% of which would be reimbursed under the NAPS programme. At the end of the apprenticeship period, there would be test conducted by the Sector Skill Council concerned and successful students would get skills certificate in addition to their degree certificate. The process of embedding apprenticeship & skill content into them, or modify the curriculum of existing degree courses to reduce classroom content and incorporate basic skill training with apprenticeship is currently underway with participation of the Sector Skill Councils and it is expected that these courses would be launched from academic year 2018-19.

Linking National Career Service with Colleges

Under this, the National Career Service (NCS) portal of Ministry of Labour & Employment would be linked with the Higher Education institutions. As of now, more than 9,000 employers have posted requirement of more than 2 lakh vacancies, for which the students can get considered. This would help students in institutions which do not have the facility of campus recruitment and would improve their employment opportunities. Apart from this, the students would be trained in soft skills required by the market.

Artificial Intelligence in Satellite Telecommunications

Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a significant role in various aspects of satellite telecommunications. Here are some areas where AI is employed in satellite telecommunications:

Overall, AI brings significant benefits to satellite telecommunications, enabling improved efficiency, reliability, and performance of satellite systems across various aspects of operation, communication, and data analysis.

IoT (Internet of things)

Satellite IoT refers to the use of satellite communication networks and services to connect terrestrial IoT sensors and IoT end-nodes to a server (e.g., in a public or private cloud), either in conjunction with or as an alternative to terrestrial communication networks.
