DU Systèmes Sol Air Aérospatiaux (SSAA)

Course Details

Objectives: The training enables the transmission of complete and science-specific theoretical knowledge that can be used by the aerospace ground-to-air systems manager using sophisticated technology-enabled systems. such as radars, rockets, radio and satellite communications, computer systems.

Intended for: Students

Acquired skills during the training : The person in charge of aerospace ground-to-air systems implements sophisticated systems using advanced technologies such as radars, rockets, radio and satellite communication means, and computer systems.
During this training, the following knowledge should be acquired: Basics of Navigation / Circuits (hydraulic, electrical, fuel) / Aero-Mécavol and thrusters / Architecture of information systems (and security of information systems) / Equipment and safety equipment (risks) / Regulations and air law / Navigation and geographic positioning data / Integrating a sense of responsibility / Appropriate communication with decision-making centers and technical players in the field / An intelligible and precise English

Duration and terms: The courses take place at the Ecole de l'Air de Salon for the military and at POLYAERO Hautes-Alpes for the civilians. The teaching is divided into 4 units over a period of 3 months, for a total of 270 hours. The development of each of the units is under the responsibility of an EU coordinator (four in total) who must draft the objectives of his teaching and determine the choice of speakers. The teaching methods are diversified: theoretical courses, tutorials, concrete case studies. This diversity must be brought to each seminar and it therefore implies the active participation of the students. Knowledge monitoring is continuous;
