ME 296M - Space Mission Des & Analyses (3 Units)

This course examines the methods of systems design and analyses required to design and optimize the space mission over its life cycle. The process of optimization covers all the major elements of a space mission such as the ground systems, launch vehicles, spacecraft/payload, space environment, in-orbit operation and maintenance, and end-of-life disposal. The optimization of the overall mission must balance between performance, cost and reliability of all the major elements.
