Interplanetary Spacecraft and Satellite Engineering

Aerospace Engineering: A Complete Guide to Design and Technology of Interplanetary Rocket Space Missions and Satellites

The Interplanetary Spacecraft and Satellite Engineering Course is a multidisciplinary course where we will study the components and systems which compose a Spacecraft. My intention is that you understand the main topics regarding the design and engineering of Spacecraft clearly, by describing in clear terms all the systems which operate in a Spacecraft.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand the basics of Astronautics.
  • Identify the components of a Spacecraft just by observing it.
  • Understand how Spacecraft Systems work.
  • Identify which systems would be optimal for certain missions and objectives.
  • Define your own mission based on the knowledge provided by this course.

Requirements

The Interplanetary Spacecraft and Satellite Engineering Course is a multidisciplinary course where we will study the components and systems which compose a Spacecraft. My intention is that you understand the main topics regarding the design and engineering of Spacecraft clearly, by describing in clear terms all the systems which operate in a Spacecraft.

The structure of the Course is the following:

Introduction

Space Environment

Orbital Mechanics

Space Propulsion

Communications

Attitude Control

Power Systems

We will discuss topics such as Radiation, Mechanics and Rigid-Body Physics, Autonomous Stabilization, Mission Definition, Spacecraft Dynamics, Photovoltaic Power Generation and many more.

The objectives of the Course are for you to understand how the instruments operate, which systems are optimal for each given mission, to identify the components of a Spacecraft, and in fact to be able to Design your own Spacecraft as a Rocket Scientist!

I encourage you to begin this journey to Spacecraft Engineering, you won’t regret it! If you have any doubts during the course feel free to contact me, I’ll answer as quick as possible!
