Ballistic Missile and Space Technology, Volume I: Design and Reliability, and Invited Addresses focuses on the advancements of processes, methodologies, and technologies involved in the design and reliability of space vehicles.
The selection first offers information on optical masers and their aerospace application and the challenges of space exploration. Discussions focus on the challenges to the aerospace industries, manned and unmanned space flights, range of optical beams, signals from other planets, long distance transmission, and radar considerations. The text then takes a look at space and education and an engineering approach to missile/rocket optimization problems.
The manuscript examines a practical method of selecting structural materials for multistage solid rocket vehicles on the basis of cost and radiation shielding of space vehicles by means of superconducting coils. Topics include coil design considerations, analysis of typical booster motor fabrication costs, fabrication processes, and design requirements. A new structural concept to capitalize on the potential light weight of beryllium and a comparison of launching methods for stationary satellites are also discussed.
The selection is a dependable reference for astronauts and researchers interested in the design and reliability of space vehicles.
