Detailed Description

127 pgs, 1997, AIAA
ISBN 978-1884989049

This initial evaluation of technologies by Aerospace scientists consists of preliminary evaluations of the applicability of micro- and nanotechnology for space systems in the areas of guidance, navigation, and control; satellite communications; spacecraft thermal control; power and electrical subsystems; spacecraft ordnance; packaging and multichip modules; micro-optics; fiber-optic sensors; mircromechanical sensors; pressure and temperature sensors; tribology; structural mechanics; microfluid mechanics; microfabrication technology; microelectronics; and cost trends.

The papers discuss the advances in microelectromechanical (MEMS) devices and application-specific integrated microinstruments (ASIM) with regard to how and when these technologies can be applied to space systems to reduce spacecraft size and reduce cost. The general categories covered include space and subsystems and devices; key technologies; fabrication; and cost assessment. The appendices provide a comprehensive list other sources of micro- and nanotechnologies applied to space systems.
