Onboard Computers, Onboard Software and Satellite Operations: An Introduction (Springer Aerospace Technology)

Buy

The development of satellites is always driven by their applications, so the payload and its satellite infrastructure can fulfill all envisioned tasks and sometimes this is under great autonomy. The brain of the satellite is the Onboard Computer with the Onboard Software providing functions, procedures and services in preparation for the different tasks. Lastly Spacecraft Operations will succeed only when the Space and Ground Segment are interlinked optimally through appropriate data handling and management concepts.

There are many examples where the flexibility of the spacecraft’s operation system determined failure or success of a mission. Completely unexpected mission scenarios or onboard failures are common situations for science and exploration satellites especially. Communication satellites also profit from the reliability and flexibility of the onboard systems as the spectacular recovery of the European Artemis satellite demonstrated in 2003 when Artemis could be repositioned in its correct orbit after 18 months of recovery activities. Also new rules avoiding space debris and for deorbiting satellites at the end of their life call for very robust and flexible onboard computer systems to ensure full operational capability at the end of satellite lifetime when some components like gyros might have already failed.

This book entitled "Onboard Computers, Onboard Software and Spacecraft Operations – An Introduction" covers in a broad yet detailed way the important aspects for satellite development and operation. To our knowledge it is the first book completely covering the whole subject including particularly subtopic interdependencies. It is a result of a manuscript which has been used and consistently taught as an examined lecture series at the University of Stuttgart for several years. The book is equally applicable for students as well as experts of many engineering disciplines. It is suitable for an introductory course as well as a reference text in modern system engineering.

Foundations Of Decision-Making Agents: Logic, Probability and Modality
Foundations Of Decision-Making Agents: Logic, Probability and Modality

This self-contained book provides three fundamental and generic approaches (logical, probabilistic, and modal) to representing and reasoning with agent epistemic states, specifically in the context of decision making. Each of these approaches can be applied to the construction of intelligent software agents for making decisions, thereby...

Unit Testing in Java: How Tests Drive the Code
Unit Testing in Java: How Tests Drive the Code

Software testing is indispensable and is one of the most discussed topics in software development today. Many companies address this issue by assigning a dedicated software testing phase towards the end of their development cycle. However, quality cannot be tested into a buggy application. Early and continuous unit testing has been shown to be...
