Safety Design for Space Systems
by Tommaso Sgobba, Axel Larsen and Gary Musgrave
Future progress in space safety lies in the acceptance of safety design and engineering as an integral part of the design and implementation process for new space systems, be they satellite systems, research projects, maintenance projects, or manned missions. This book details all key elements that impact on space systems safety, including and not limited to the space environment (natural and induced), human physiology in space, human rating factors, emergency capabilities, launch propellants amd oxidizer systems, life support systems, battery and fuel cell safety, nuclear power generators safety, habitat activities, fire protection, safety-critical software development, collision avoidance systems design, operations and on-orbit maintenance.
  • The only comprehensive space systems safety reference, its must-have status within space agencies and suppliers, technical and aerospace libraries is practically guaranteed
  • Written by the leading figures in the industry from NASA, ESA, JAXA, (et cetera), with frontline experience from projects ranging from the Apollo missions, Skylab, the Space Shuttle, small and large satellite systems, and the International Space Station.
  • Superb quality information for engineers, programme managers, suppliers and aerospace technologists; fully supported by the IAASS (International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety)
  • Hardcover: 1000 pages
  • Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann (October 1, 2008)
  • ISBN-10: 0750685808
