A Practical Guide to Agile Mission Design and Spacecraft Development with Data-Driven Systems Engineering
“A practical guide to agile mission design and spacecraft development with data-driven systems engineering”, presented during the European Space Agency’s 9th International Systems & Concurrent Engineering for Space Applications Conference (SECESA) 2020.
How to calculate Mission Specified Propulsion System Parameters – Part III
Welcome back! In the last two posts, we’ve introduced you to the first steps and calculations of how to calculate mission specified propulsion system parameters. We know it’s been a lot of information so, thank you for sticking with us! Let’s start with designing the other subsystems that facilitate the accurate functioning of the satellite propulsion system.
How to calculate Mission Specified Propulsion System Parameters – Part II
In the last post we’ve left you with the thrust calculations but did you think about the condition Pe=Pa? And that the thrust is maximum and the nozzle is said to be adapted? This condition is called optimum or correct expansion.
How to calculate Mission Specified Propulsion System Parameters – Part I
Human beings are curious about everything that’s happening in the world at all times. Satellites play a big role when it comes to sharing and accessing information worldwide. In the media, we hear a lot of buzz around the global applications of satellites but have you ever wondered how a satellite propulsion system is modelled?
Efficient Engineering 101 (II): Document-Driven vs. Data-Driven Systems Engineering (DDSE)
Did you know that most satellites are being built with Excel? Or that engineers spend 86% of their time updating documents and searching for information? It’s about time to approach the way of engineering from a different angle.
