Satellite Operations: Systems Approach to Design and Control
This book aims to demonstrate how multiple development activities in space exploitation can be reduced by a rationalized approach, which can result in technical standards and methodologies. It concentrates on systems engineering techniques, with a blend of relevant engineering management techniques. A communications system embracing a geostationary communications satellite is taken as the book's prime example.
