Aerojet rocketdyne and sierra nevada corp have concluded a four-month study that focused on modifying advanced solar electric propulsion vehicle concepts for future human exploration missions and deep space habitation. Advanced concepts in space propulsion reduce the mass of the space vehicle, which is why it is considered a more ideal the distant future to take a look at.
The four focus areas are: aerospace engineering systems, which studies upper and lower atmosphere vehicles from a systems perspective, including control, fluid dynamics, structures and propulsion subsystems astrodynamics and satellite navigation systems, which investigates orbital motion of spacecraft, interplanetary mission design, attitude. Space transportation: an atv perspective european space agency, esa the mission of jules verne, the first automated transfer vehicle (atv) that was docked to the international space station. Abstract: a theme that has come to the fore in advanced planning for long-range space exploration is the concept that empty space itself (the quantum vacuum, or spacetime metric) might be engineered so as to provide energy/thrust for future space vehicles. Study of airbreathing electric thruster for nearspace of the near-space vehicles, and the electric propulsion is regarded as a look into the force production.
It also seeks to provide students with a broad education in the aerospace and ocean vehicle fields encompassing fluid dynamics, vehicle dynamics and control, propulsion, and structures, and including an emphasis on design and synthesis in a team environment. I used this book in a space vehicle design class if you intend to use this text to gain a broad understanding of the basic design considerations for space vehicles, i believe you will be satisfied if, however, you would like to go into depth regarding rocket propulsion, orbital mechanics, structural/vibration analysis, reentry, etc look for.
