Doctor of Engineering internship experience at Ball Aerospace Systems Division, Boulder, Colorado: an internship report
MetadataShow full item record
This monograph describes the author's internship experiences at Ball Aerospace Systems Division, Boulder, Colorado. A system-level spacecraft design procedure is presented. It describes a spacecraft design flow with emphasis on the interactions among subsystem design decisions. The preliminary subsystem trade studies are discussed. Several financial and marketing issues of spacecraft contract proposal development are discussed. The linear design and analysis of the attitude control system for the Air Force Starscan spacecraft is presented. The equations of motion are developed and several attitude control structures and saturation torque limiting schemes are analyzed.
