Principles of Space Instrument Design (Cambridge Aerospace Series)

Buy
Scientific observations from space require instruments which can operate in the orbital environment. The skills needed to design such special instruments span many disciplines. This book aims to bring together the elements of the design process. It is, first, a manual for the newly graduated engineer or physicist involved with the design of instruments for a space project. Secondly the book is a text to support the increasing number of undergmduate and MSc courses which offer, as part of a degree in space science and technology, lecture courses in space engineering and management. To these ends, the book demands no more than the usual educational background required for such students.

Following their diverse experience, the authors outline a wide range of topics from space environment physics and system design, to mechanisms, some space optics, project management and finally small science spacecraft. Problems frequently met in design and verification are addressed. The treatment of electronics and mechanical design is based on taught courses wide enough for students with a minimum background in these subjects, but in a book of this length and cost, we have been unable to cover all aspects of spacecraft design. Hence topics such as the study of attitude control and spacecraft propulsion for inflight manreuvres, with which most instrument designers would not be directly involved, must be found elsewhere.

Analytical Mechanics of Space Systems (AIAA Education)

KINEMATICS is a branch of dynamics that studies aspects of motion apart from considerations of masses and forces. Essentially, Kinematics is a collection of vector/matrix methods to describe positions, velocities and accelerations of particles and rigid bodies, as viewed from various reference frames. The sub- eld of Particle Kinematics...
