AUTHOR

Pisacane, Vincent L., Moore, Robert C.

SUMMARY

This multidisciplinary book is intended for individuals interested in understanding, planning, designing, and managing the design, fabrication, integration, and testing of instruments and systems for use in outer space. The authors provide an introduction to the development of space instrumentation and spacecraft systems and subsystems by presenting the principles of systems engineering necessary to formulate the development process and the salient technical characteristics of the functional subsystems. The depth is sufficient to permit the reader to generate an initial mission concept within the boundaries of a given set of specifications. The book exposes the reader to the underlying scientific and engineering foundations as well as the current practices so that they will understand how to carry out appropriate tradeoffs. Topics are covered to the depth that should allow the carrying out of the concept design of a space mission by making the trade-offs necessary to satisfy a given set of needs or systems requirements. For the uninitiated or the more narrowly focused space specialists, this book serves to broaden one's perspective and increase the breadth of one's capabilities. An understanding of this material will also permit professionals to carry our broader assignments and begin the transition to careers in systems engineering, aeronautical technical leadership, or managing the development of space systems. The content can also serve as a good introduction to more focused study.Pisacane, Vincent L. is the author of 'Fundamentals of Space System' with ISBN 9780195074970 and ISBN 0195074971.
