Dépèche transmise le 12 octobre 2011 par Business Wire

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/84c116/safety_design_for) has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new report "Safety Design for Space Systems" to their extensive offering of engineering research publications.

Progress in space safety lies in the acceptance of safety design and engineering as an integral part of the design and implementation process for new space systems. Safety must be seen as the principle design driver of utmost importance from the outset of the design process, which is only achieved through a culture change that moves all stakeholders toward front-end loaded safety concepts. This approach entails a common understanding and mastering of basic principles of safety design for space systems at all levels of the program organisation.

Fully supported by the International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety (IAASS), and written by leading figures in the industry with frontline experience from projects including the Apollo missions, Skylab, the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station, Safety Design for Space Systems provides a comprehensive reference for aerospace engineers in industry.

It addresses each of the key elements that impact on space systems safety, including: the space environment (natural and induced); human physiology in space; human rating factors; emergency capabilities; launch propellants and oxidizer systems; life support systems; battery and fuel cell safety; nuclear power generators (NPG) safety; habitat activities; fire protection; safety-critical software development; collision avoidance systems design; operations and on-orbit maintenance. The only comprehensive space systems safety reference, Safety Design for Space Systems' must-have status within space agencies and suppliers, technical and aerospace libraries is practically guaranteed, providing superb quality information for engineers, programme managers, suppliers and aerospace technologists.
