›Spacecraft Systems Design Short Course
This intensive 5 day course provides delegates with an introduction to the engineering aspects of satellite and mission design - with particular emphasis on the design of small low-cost satellites.
It will be assumed that delegates have a basic understanding of orbits and spacecraft dynamics.
Through a series of intensive lectures and exercises, the course aims to give an introduction to the design and construction of spacecraft, showing how the mission, and the space environment itself constrain the engineering.
Delegates should leave the course with a knowledge of:
• The Space Environment & its Effects;
• Spacecraft Platform Systems & Design;
• Satellite Manufacture & Testing
• Applications of Small, Low-Cost Satellites
• Space Mission Analysis & Design
By the end of the course, each delegate should have a good understanding of the way that satellites are designed and built. Because the course gives emphasis to the theoretical aspects of the subject, delegates will be able to apply their knowledge to a wide range of spacecraft design problems ranging from single payloads to whole spacecraft.
