Elements of Spacecraft Design (2002)(1st ed.)(en)(610s) by Wren Software, Inc. C. Brown

By Wren Software, Inc. C. Brown

This article discusses the conceptual phases of venture layout, platforms engineering, and orbital mechanics, offering a foundation for realizing the layout technique for various elements and services of a spacecraft. assurance comprises propulsion and gear structures, constructions, perspective regulate, thermal keep an eye on, command and knowledge structures, and telecommunications. labored examples and routines are integrated, as well as appendices on acronyms and abbreviations and spacecraft layout facts. The publication can be utilized for self-study or for a direction in spacecraft layout. Brown directed the group that produced the Magellan spacecraft, and has taught spacecraft layout on the college of Colorado.
