    ATI February Space & Satellite Courses

    Space Environment – Implications for Spacecraft Design Feb 2-3, 2009 (Beltsville, MD)
    This two-day course presents an introduction to the space environment and its effect on spacecraft. Emphasis is placed on problem solving techniques and design guidelines that will provide the student with an understanding of how space environment effects may be minimized through proactive spacecraft design. Each student will receive a copy of the course text, a complete set of course notes, including copies of all viewgraphs used in the presentation, and a comprehensive bibliography. Register

    Space Mission Structures: From Concept to Launch Feb 10-13, 2009 (Beltsville, MD)
    This four-day course presents the structure for a space or launch vehicle as a system. Originally based on the instructor’s book, Spacecraft Structures and Mechanisms: From Concept to Launch, this course has evolved and been improved continuously since 1995. The instructor shares numerous case histories and experiences to drive the main points home. Calculators are required to work class problems. Each participant will receive a copy of the instructors’ 850-page reference book, Spacecraft Structures and Mechanisms: From Concept to Launch. Register

    Spacecraft Thermal Control Feb 11-12, 2009 (Beltsville, MD)
    This is a fast paced two-day course for system engineers and managers with an interest in improving their understanding of spacecraft thermal design. All phases of thermal design analysis are covered in enough depth to give a deeper understanding of the design process and of the materials used in thermal design. Program managers and systems engineers will also benefit from the bigger picture information and tradeoff issues. Register

    Modern Missile Analysis Feb 23-26, 2009 (Beltsville, MD)
    This four-day course provides a comprehensive introduction to homing missiles operating in the atmosphere and in space. The practical aspects of modern tactical missiles are stressed. Missile propulsion, warheads, autopilots, guidance, control, seekers, and simulation are covered. A complete set of lecture notes and illustrative performance examples will be provided. Register

    Space Systems-Intermediate Design Feb 23-27, 2009 (Beltsville, MD)
    This five-day multi-disciplinary course provides a complete summary of the technologies needed to understand and develop spacecraft systems and instrumentation. The course presents a systems engineering approach for understanding the design and testing of spacecraft systems. The course highlights the underlying scientific and engineering foundations needed to develop space systems, as well as current practices. Case studies are used to pinpoint the key issues and trade-offs in modern design, and to illustrate the lessons learned from past successes and failures. Each participant will receive a complete set of notes and the award-winning textbook, Fundamentals of Space Systems, 2nd Edition 2005. Register
