Spacecraft Structures and Mechanisms describes the integral process of developing cost-effective, reliable structures and mechanical products for space programs. Processes are defined, methods are described and examples are given. It has been written by 24 engineers in the space industry, who cover the themes of (1) ensuring a successful mission, and (2) reducing total cost through good designs and intelligent risk management. Topics include: Introduction and requirements (development process, requirements documentation, requirements definition, space mission environments); Analysis (statics, dynamics and load analysis, fatigue and fracture mechanics, mechanics of materials, strength analysis, heat transfer and thermal effects); Verification and quality assurance (verification planning, structural, mechanical and environmental testing, quality assurance and configuration control, compliance documentation, structural reliability analysis, verification criteria - factors of safety, margins of safety, fracture control, test options); Design (spacecraft configuration development, finite element analysis, mechanism development, designing for producibility, structural design, materials, designing to control loads, load cycles, sensitivity analysis); Final verification (model correlation, risk management, launch readiness reviews). For system engineers, mechanical designers, stress analysts, dynamics and load analysts, technical leads, program managers.

Fundamentals of Astrodynamics and Applications is rapidly becoming the standard astrodynamics reference for those involved in the business of spaceflight. What sets this book apart is that nearly all of the theoretical mathematics is followed by discussions of practical applications implemented in tested software routines. For example, the book includes a compendium of algorithms that allow students and professionals to determine orbits with high precision using a PC. Without a doubt, when an astrodynamics problem arises in the future, it will become standard practice for engineers to keep this volume close at hand and `look it up in Vallado'. While the first edition was an exceptionally useful and popular book throughout the community, there are a number of reasons why the second edition will be even more so. There are many reworked examples and derivations. Newly introduced topics include ground illumination calculations, Moon rise and set, and a listing of relevant Internet sites. There is an improved and expanded discussion of coordinate systems, orbit determination, and differential correction. Perhaps most important is that all of the software routines described in the book are now available for free in FORTRAN, PASCAL, and C. This makes the second edition an even more valuable text and superb reference.

Changing the focus of the multibillion-dollar global aerospace business toward smaller, lower-cost spacecraft is not happening solely due to technical, managerial, financial or market motivations. Rick Fleeter's second book on the small, low-cost space programmes which are the fastest-growing segment of aerospace activity, gives the reader a keen understanding of the full spectrum of factors driving this profound change. The text then goes beyond engineering technologies and management techniques to envision the tantalizing prospects microspace has in store for the industry, its present markets and those of the future.

In recent decades, the number of satellites being built and launched into Earth’s orbit has grown immensely, alongside the field of space engineering itself. This book offers an in-depth guide to engineers and professionals seeking to understand the technologies behind Low Earth Orbit satellites. With access to special spreadsheets that provide the key equations and relationships needed for mastering spacecraft design, this book gives the growing crop of space engineers and professionals the tools and resources they need to prepare their own LEO satellite designs, which is especially useful for designers of small satellites such as those launched by universities. Each chapter breaks down the various mathematics and principles underlying current spacecraft software and hardware designs.

This authoritative first volume provides a solid understanding of modern spacecraft classification, failure, and electrical component requirements. This book focuses on the study of modern spacecraft, including their classification, packaging and protection, design versions, launch failure and accident analysis, and the main requirements of electronic components used. Readers find comprehensive coverage of the design and development of individual components as well as systems, their packaging, and how to make them last in space. This is a useful resource for military and civil applications. Specific topics include: The manufacturing of electronics for space; The main physical mechanisms of the impact of destabilizing factors of outer space, including various kinds of radiation, high-energy galactic icons, and particles of cosmic dust;The design of advanced space-grade microelectronic products such as memory microcircuits, microprocessors, interface and logic of microcircuits and power control microcircuits;Facts and features about the “space race” that have not been available until now.

The definition of all space systems starts with the establishment of its fundamental parameters: requirements to be fulfilled, overall system and satellite design, analysis and design of the critical elements, developmental approach, cost, and schedule. There are only a few texts covering early design of space systems and none of them has been specifically dedicated to it. Furthermore all existing space engineering books concentrate on analysis. None of them deal with space system synthesis – with the interrelations between all the elements of the space system. Introduction to Space Systems concentrates on understanding the interaction between all the forces, both technical and non-technical, which influence the definition of a space system. This book refers to the entire system: space and ground segments, mission objectives as well as to cost, risk, and mission success probabilities. Introduction to Space Systems is divided into two parts. The first part analyzes the process of space system design in an abstract way. The second part of the book focuses on concrete aspects of the space system design process. It concentrates on interactions between design decisions and uses past design examples to illustrate these interactions. The idea is for the reader to acquire a good insight in what is a good design by analyzing these past designs.

The design of space stations like the recently launched ISS is a highly complex and interdisciplinary task. This book describes component technologies, system integration, and the potential usage of space stations in general and of the ISS in particular. It so adresses students and engineers in space technology. Ernst Messerschmid holds the chair of space systems at the University of Stuttgart and was one of the first German astronauts.

Der Entschluß, ein Buch über den Ursprung (bzw. die Ursprünge) des - bens zu verfassen, setzt voraus, daß man von diesem wissenschaftlichen „großen Problem“ noch immer fasziniert ist, wenn auch die erste intensive Beschäftigung mit dieser Thematik mehr als drei Jahrzehnte zurückliegt. Experimentelle Arbeiten über Protein-Modellsubstanzen unter den si- lierten Bedingungen der Urerde führten zur Entstehung eines der ersten deutschsprachigen Bücher über „Chemische und Molekulare Evolution“, das ich mit Klaus Dose (Mainz), von dem auch die Initiative ausging, v- faßte. Die enorme Erweiterung und Differenzierung dieses Forschungsgebietes führte in den letzten Jahren zur Gründung eines neuen, interdisziplinären Wissenschaftszweiges, der „Exo-/Astrobiologie“. Sie verfolgt das we- gespannte, ehrgeizige Ziel, das Phänomen „Leben“ im gesamten Kosmos zu erforschen. In den folgenden Kapiteln wird ein Überblick über die vielfältigen - mühungen von Wissenschaftlern gegeben, Antworten auf die Frage nach dem „Woher“ des Lebens zu finden. Dabei ist über Erfolge, aber auch Mißerfolge sowie über Diskussionen und gelegentlich harte Kontroversen zu berichten. Es soll aber auch deutlich dargestellt werden, wie viele of- ne Fragen und ungeklärte Rätsel noch auf eine Antwort warten. Es sind - ren mehr, als gern eingestanden wird! – Die Fülle an wissenschaftlichen Publikationen macht es leider unmöglich, über alle Bereiche dieses int- disziplinär ausgerichteten Teilgebietes der Naturwissenschaften mit gl- cher Ausführlichkeit zu berichten.
