CNES Space Technology Course
This version (dated 2005) of the Spacecraft techniques and technology courses was written by more than eighty engineers and experts specialised in the various fields. The courses draw on the long experience and technical competence of the Toulouse space centre in developing and building satellites or experimental payloads.
This 3-volume book was the 4th edition of the course. All of the texts were written by specialists, the aim being to pass on some of their know-how to engineers and technicians wishing to widen or update their technical knowledge. Whenever we needed to describe multidisciplinary functions, we sought out engineers who were in charge of these functions for space projects. The first volume deals with missions and related constraints, spacecraft dynamics, the space environment and methods for developing and controlling the quality of spacecraft.
The second volume deals with payloads (for telecommunications, observation, science, location-navigation) first from a mission perspective and then with respect to their technical and technological aspects.
The third volume covers the techniques and technology used for satellite platforms, namely, mechanical, structural and thermal aspects, propulsion, stabilisation, electricity and computing.
