Motivation

A system begins with an idea, from the stakeholders’ needs, that must be translated into reality. The designers must know the concrete system entities and organizations to create a fitting architecture that may concretize the stakeholder needs. In Aerospace Engineering the pre-concepts starts through a Space System Architecture Design.

In the Book “Space Mission Analysis and Design”, Wertz summarized the common space mission architecture system elements that serves as a starting core to design. These system elements, as well as the Wertz Method, need to be known by the Aerospace Engineers, so they can make decisions of best fit candidate solutions. This course intends to describe the technological elements of the Space Systems, researching known missions and technologies, and a set of hands-on experiment.
