Space Environment & It's Effects On Space Systems Training


Space Environment & It’s Effects On Space Systems Training Course Description

This four-day Space Environment & It’s Effects On Space Systems Training on the space environment and its effects on space systems is for technical and management personnel who wish to gain an understanding of the important issues that must be addressed in the development of space instrumentation, subsystems, and systems. The goal is to assist students to achieve their professional potential by endowing them with an understanding of the fundamentals of the space environment and its effects. The class is designed for participants who expect to either, plan, design, build, integrate, test, launch, operate or manage payloads, subsystems, launch vehicles, spacecraft, or ground systems.

Duration:4 days

Skills Gained:

• Space system failures caused by the space environment
• Risk analysis, management, and mitigation
• Fundamentals of the space neutral, plasma, solar, and radiation environments
• Effects of the space environment on space systems and how to mitigate their effects

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
