Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic knowledge in multivariable calculus and electromagnetic field theory.

Syfte

After the course, the students will be able to understand the complexity of spacecraft systems, the space environment and its effect on spacecraft, and how spacecraft are used for scientific and commercial purposes. Students will be able to perform basic calculations in spacecraft systems engineering (especially orbit and link budget calculations), and be ready for deeper studies of various aspects of space science and technology.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)


  • Give examples of applications of space techniques.

  • Describe which subsystems a satellite has and what they are used for.

  • Analyse satellite orbits using Kepler's laws and related equations.

  • Sketch and analyze a ground track.

  • Explain perturbations on orbits and how they are used or counteracted for practical orbits.

  • Describe how a rocket works and give advantages and disadvantages with different types of rockets.

  • Use the rocket equation for orbit transfer calculations.

  • Perform a link budget calculation.

  • Describe the motion of a charged particle in an electromagnetic field.

  • Define a plasma and explain the concepts plasma oscillations and Debye shielding.

  • Describe the near-Earth environment.

  • Describe environmental effects on spacecraft and spacecraft design.

  • Calculate the equilibrium temperature of a satellite.

  • Give examples of methods to increase the reliability of a spacecraft system.

  • Use computerbased tools to study ground track and environmental effects on spacecraft.

Innehåll

The course includes: * Keplers laws and related equations, orbit perturbations, GEO, LEO, sunsynchrounous orbits, spherical trigonometry, satellite tracking, ground tracks, orbits for different applications. * Launch vehicles and Rockets (basic rocket principles, different types of rockets and propulsion systems, launch sequence) * Satellite subsystems (platform and payload, spin and three-axis stabilisation, electrical power, attitude and orbit control, telemetry, tracking and command, temperature control, reliability) * Satellite communication (antennas, receivers and transponders, noise, link budget) * Applications (e.g. remote sensing, navigation, astronomy, aeronomy) * Motion of charged particles in electromagnetic fields, basic plasma physics (definition of plasma, plasma oscillations, Debye shielding) * The Sun, solar activity, and the Sun's influence on the space environment and on spacecraft. * The near-Earth environment: the magnetosphere and plasmas, the radiation belts and cosmic rays, the upper atmosphere and ionosphere, auroras. * Environmental effects on spacecraft: plasma effects, ionizing radiation, neutral particles and drag, micrometeoroids and orbital debris, electromagnetic radiation and thermal effects, weightlessness and satellite attitude disturbances, space weather.
