Onboard Computers, Onboard Software and Satellite Operations: An Introduction (Springer Aerospace Technology)

Jens Eickhoff


This publication is meant as a process engineer's compendium, explaining the dependencies and technical interactions among the onboard machine undefined, the onboard software program and the spacecraft operations from flooring. After a short advent at the next improvement in all 3 fields over the spacecraft engineering stages all of the major topis is handled extensive in a separate part.

The good points of today’s onboard pcs are defined to hand in their ancient evolution over the a long time from the early days of spaceflight as much as at the present time. newest system-on-chip processor architectures are handled in addition to all onboard laptop significant components.

After the onboard laptop the corresponding software program is handled in a separate half. either the software program static structure in addition to the dynamic structure are lined, and improvement applied sciences in addition to software program verification methods are included.

Following those elements at the onboard structure, the final half covers the recommendations of spacecraft operations from flooring. This contains the nominal operations innovations, the redundancy inspiration and the subject of failure detection, isolation and recovery.

The baseline examples within the ebook are taken from the area of satellites and deep area probes. the foundations and plenty of stated criteria on spacecraft commanding, and software program even if additionally observe to different area purposes like launchers. The ebook is both acceptable for college students in addition for process engineers in area industry.
