Everything about Orbital Mechanics is Counterintuitive 
Award-winning rocket scientist, Thomas S. Logsdon really enjoys teaching this short course titled, ATI’s Orbital Mechanics: Ideas and Insights, because everything about orbital mechanics is counterintuitive. In this comprehensive four day short course, Mr. Logsdon uses four hundred clever color graphics to clarify these and a dozen other puzzling mysteries associated with orbital mechanics. He also provides you with a few simple one-page derivations using real-world inputs to illustrate all the key concepts being explored. For example, did you know that if you fly your spacecraft into a 100-mile circular orbit and: • Put on the brakes, your spacecraft speeds up! • Mash down the accelerator, it slows down!! • Throw a banana peel out the window and 45 minutes later it will come back and slap you in the face!!! Why not take a short course? Since 1984, the Applied Technology Institute (ATI) has provided leading-edge public courses and onsite technical training to DoD and NASA personnel, as well as contractors. ATI short courses are less than a week long and are designed to help you keep your professional knowledge up-to-date. Our courses provide a practical overview of space and defense technologies which provide a strong foundation for understanding the issues that must be confronted in the use, regulation and development of complex systems. Whether you are a busy engineer, a technical expert or a project manager, you can enhance your understanding of satellite systems in a short time. You will become aware of the basic vocabulary essential to interact meaningfully with your colleagues. Determine for yourself the value of our courses before you sign up.

What You Will Learn When You Take this Course: • How do we launch a satellite into orbit and maneuver it into a new location? • How do today’s designers fashion performance-optimal constellations of satellites swarming the sky? • How do planetary swing by maneuvers provide such amazing gains in performance? • How can we design the best multi-stage rocket for a particular mission? • What are libration point orbits? Were they really discovered in 1772? How do we place satellites into halo orbits circling around these empty points in space? • What are JPL’s superhighways in space? How were they discovered? How are they revolutionizing the exploration of space? After attending the course you will receive a full set of detailed notes from the class for future reference, as well as a certificate of completion. Each student will receive a new personal GPS Navigator with multi-channel capability. Please visit our website for more valuable information.

ATI’S MILITARY STANDARD 810G (MIL-STD-810G) TESTING COURSE
The course emphasizes topics you will use immediately. Suppliers to the military services protectively install commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in our flight and land vehicles and in shipboard locations where vibration and shock can be severe
This four-day class will provide education in the purpose of each test, the equipment required to perform each test, and the methodology to correctly apply the specified test environments. Vibration and Shock methods will be covered together and will include an overview of Sine and Random Vibration as well as classical waveform shock testing, drop testing and Shock Response Spectrum Testing. Instrumentation, vibration equipment, control systems and fixture design will be covered. Each climatic test will be discussed individually, focusing on requirements, origination, equipment required, test methodology and understanding of results. Class members will participate in a tour of a lab that daily performs the full spectrum of 810G tests. Class discussion will be supported by projected visuals and video clips. Commencing with a review of basic vibrations, we will explore vibration measurements and analysis. We’ll compare sinusoidal vs. random vibration testing systems, specifications, standards and procedures. We will emphasize vibration and shock test fixture design, fabrication, experimental evaluation and usage. We will study shock measurement, shock response spectrum (SRS) and shock testing. Climatic testing will be looked at in great detail, emphasizing required equipment and instrumentation, correct interpretation of specifications and hints to ensure that the tests are brought to a successful conclusion. We laboratory test the protected equipment (1) to assure twenty years equipment survival and possible combat, also (2) to meet commercial test standards, IEC documents, military standards such as STANAG or MIL-STD-810G, etc. What you will learn: • perform vibration, shock and climatic tests • evaluate and select equipment to perform testing • convert field measured data into a test program, • interpret vibration and shock test requirements and results, • supervise vibration, shock and climatic tests, • specify and experimentally evaluate vibration and shock test fixtures When you visit a test lab or review a test program, you will have a good understanding of the requirements and execution of dynamics and climatics tests and so be able to ask meaningful questions and understand laboratory personnel responses. If you are in need of more technical training, then boost your career with the knowledge needed to provide better, faster, and cheaper solutions for sophisticated DoD and NASA systems. Why not take a short course instead? ATI short courses are less than a week long and are designed to help you keep your professional knowledge up-to-date. Our courses provide a practical overview of space and defense technologies which provide a strong foundation for understanding the issues that must be confronted in the use, regulation and development of complex systems. Course Outline, Samplers, and Notes After attending the course you will receive a full set of detailed notes from the class for future reference, as well as a certificate of completion. Each participant will also receive a copy of Wayne Tustin’s text ‘A Minimal-Mathematics Introduction to the Fundamentals of Random Vibration and Shock Testing, HALT, ESS & HASS, also Measurements, Analysis & Calibration’, including a CD containing a number of video clips pertaining to sine and random vibration and shock behavior and testing.

In a knowledge-based economy, your success is directly proportional to the amount of knowledge you possess
As Thomas Edison observed, “We don’t know one millionth of one percent about anything.” At the rate at which new information is generated today, doesn’t it seem like the gap between what you know and what you need is to know is growing at a dizzying pace? From submarine sonar to military radar to an orbiting spacecraft, you or your team must face the challenges of tomorrow with what you know today. With the practical knowledge gained from a short course, you can put textbook theories into real-world practice and expand your problem-solving and risk management skills significantly. Whether you are a busy engineer, a technical expert or a project manager, you can enhance your understanding of these complex systems in a short time.
