Space mission analysis and design
The second edition of Space Mission Analysis and Design continues the tradition of emphasizing the process of mission design establshed by the first edition. Process tables are now included for all elements of the design activity. The quick-reference tables of important mission design parameters have been expanded to six pages on the inside rear cover. Numerous data tables have been expanded and updated, including space computers and a new presentation of satellite lifetimes. New sections have been added on defining the overall mission concept, subject trades, guidance and navigation, and applying the mission analysis and design process to reduce cost and risk in later program stages. The material on mission analysis, space payloads, spacecraft subsystems, and launch systems has been substantially revised. This book remains an invaluable tool for the concept exploration process and is requied reading for anyone involved in this process for unmanned space missions. This book is intended for professionals and students in astronautics and space science, aerospace engineers and managers, and scientists involved with space experiments. It is also very suitable as a textbook in space mission analysis and design, or as supplementary reading for courses in virually any area of space technology.
