Research and Markets: Spacecraft Systems Engineering: Updated Edition of the Bestselling and Well-established Introductory Guide to the Engineering of Spacecraft for Students and Engineers Alike

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fd88fb/spacecraft_systems) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Spacecraft Systems Engineering, 4th Edition" to their offering.

This fourth edition of the bestselling Spacecraft Systems Engineering title provides the reader with comprehensive coverage of the design of spacecraft and the implementation of space missions, across a wide spectrum of space applications and space science. The text has been thoroughly revised and updated, with each chapter authored by a recognized expert in the field. Three chapters - Ground Segment, Product Assurance and Spacecraft System Engineering - have been rewritten, and the topic of Assembly, Integration and Verification has been introduced as a new chapter, filling a gap in previous editions.

This edition addresses front-end system-level issues such as environment, mission analysis and system engineering, but also progresses to a detailed examination of subsystem elements which represents the core of spacecraft design. This includes mechanical, electrical and thermal aspects, as well as propulsion and control. This quantitative treatment is supplemented by an emphasis on the interactions between elements, which deeply influences the process of spacecraft design.

KEY FEATURES

  • Provides balanced and comprehensive coverage of the different and diverse areas of engineering required in the design and implementation of spacecraft and space missions.
  • Includes major revisions to the chapters on launch vehicles, structures, ground stations and mechanisms, and a new chapter on Assembly, Integration and Test.
  • Unique in its approach that is rooted in and reflects the new developments in European space technology, which continues to mature at a rapid speed.

READERSHIP

Adopted on courses worldwide, Spacecraft Systems Engineering is already widely respected by students, researchers and practising engineers in the space engineering sector. It provides a valuable resource for practitioners in a wide spectrum of disciplines, including system and subsystem engineers, spacecraft equipment designers, spacecraft operators, space scientists and those involved in related sectors such as space insurance.

Authors:

Peter Fortescue, Graham Swinerd (University of Southampton, UK), John Stark (Queen Mary & Westfield College)
