Study Notes

Space System Design Considerations

  • A major consideration in the design of any space system is the space environment and its effects on the spacecraft.

Space Environment Factors

  • The space environment includes all factors that can cause damage to a spacecraft, except for human error.
  • The space environment factors that can cause damage to a spacecraft include radiation, extreme temperatures, meteoroids, and orbital debris.

Hazards of Spacecraft Electronics

  • The hazards of spacecraft electronics are attributed to the total ionizing dose (TID) and single-event effects (SEEs).

Course Emphasis

  • The course emphasizes the natural environmental factors and interactions that contribute to the hazards of spacecraft electronics.

Operational Anomalies and Satellite Failures

  • A significant number of reported operational anomalies and satellite failures have been attributed to space radiation and single-event effects (SEEs).
