Space Mission Engineering – The New SMAD
Space Mission Engineering: The New SMAD is an entirely new approach to creating a text and a practical engineering reference for space mission design. Just as space technology has advanced, the way we learn and work has changed dramatically in recent years. The SME combines the best features of a traditional unified text and reference covering the entire field, an electronic version that does many calculations for you, and the web that allows regular updates and connections to the vast literature base available online. Among the many features of this new approach are: This is a completely rewritten, updated, and expanded follow-on to the 3rd edition of Space Mission Analysis and Design, covering a great many topics not previously covered, such as CubeSats, Inflatable Structures, Space Economics, End-of-Mission options, Space System Risk Analysis, and new, much more precise formulas for ground station and target coverage. Downloadable electronic spreadsheets for most of the numerical tables and plots in the booklet. You, for example, calculate all of the critical parameters for orbits about the Sun, Moon, Earth, and any of the other planets, or even new planets, moons, or stars of your choosing. An annotated bibliography and updated references on the web as new connections become available show you where to get nearly all of the concerns with direct links to those available at no cost and where on the web to buy copyrighted books and professional papers not available for free. All of the cross-referencing, careful definitions, and thoroughly explained equations are the key ingredients of any high-quality engineering text or reference, along with the wisdom and experience gained at substantial cost by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable space system engineers in the world.
