This course offers a detailed look at basic spacecraft avionics systems engineering and design processes and principals. All spacecraft avionics systems have similarities, but differ in many ways. This course addresses the up-front systems engineering process; requirement levels, trade studies, requirements allocation/linking requirements derivation, requirements verification, risk and risk assessment, safety, integration and test, costing, scheduling, and then applying all this to the avionics subsystem level design on a subsystem-by-subsystem basis. Attendees will be exposed to avionics subsystem designs that are typically used on satellite buses and will learn the terms, nomenclature and rules of thumb used in the development process. Each avionics subsystem is explained in detail to gain insight into manpower and cost requirements. In addition to spacecraft avionics equipment, the design, fabrication, and qualification of the electrical ground support equipment required for satellites are discussed in detail.
Who Should Attend:
Space, Spacecraft, and Launch Vehicle Systems Engineers, Avionics Subsystem Designers, Managers, Business Development personnel, System Safety Engineers, Risk Engineers and Managers, Electrical Ground Support Equipment Engineers, Integration and Test Engineers, and Environmental Test Engineers
What You Will Learn:
Applying the systems engineering process and principles to the system level design, developing the overall and subsystem architectures and then down into each of the Avionics Subsystems. How the systems engineering process is applied to evaluate and determine the risks, safety, and trade studies to the requirements derivation process, subsystem design, and then requirements verification.
