James R. Wertz

Orbit & Constellation Design & Management (Softback) [James R. Wertz - 2001]

  968 pgs, 2001, Microcosm/STL
  ISBN 978-1881883074

Orbit & Constellation Design & Management (OCDM) provides greatly expanded detail on many topics first introduced in the 2 of the earlier Wertz works - Spacecraft Attitude Determination and Control (SADC) and Space Mission Analysis and Design (SMAD). If these two books got you started in mission engineering and you need more detail on the key area of Spacecraft Orbit and Attitude Systems (SOAS), then this book provides more detail in SOAS requirements definition, mission geometry, orbit and constellation design, relative motion of satellites, observation and measurement systems engineering, orbit control and management, and similar topics.

    3. Attitude Properties and Terminology
    4. Space-Based Orbit , Attitude, and Timing Systems
    5. Definition of Requirements
    6. Geometry on the Celestial Sphere
    7. Spacecraft Position and Attitude Measurements
    8. Full Sky Spherical Geometry
