The ARC Aerospace Research Central contains decades of technical information and documents on aerospace technology, engineering, science and the most important developments and research in air and space history.
This is the first book of its kind to cover the unique challenges of creating, maintaining, and operating a system that operates in both outer space and cyber space. It covers the impact that cyber threats can have on space systems and how the cybersecurity industry must rise to meet the threats.
Using anecdotal reports from astronauts and cosmonauts, and the results from studies conducted in space analog environments on Earth and in the actual space environment, this book broadly reviews the various psychosocial issues that affect space travelers.

Any mission to space depends on years (if not decades) of work by thousands of dedicated individuals on the ground. This book is a long-overdue history of three major centers that have managed important missions since the dawn of the space age: Johnson Space Center in Houston, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, and the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.
Provides a comparative analysis that details the similarities and differences between the national space laws of selected states with a focus on European comprehensive national space legislation. The states discussed are: Sweden, the United Kingdom, Australia, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Austria, Indonesia, Denmark, New Zealand and Luxembourg.
As space mission duration increases, so will the psychosocial stresses for astronauts. This book explores some of the contributions of psychology to yesterday's great space race, today's orbiter and International Space Station missions, and tomorrow's journeys beyond Earth's orbit.
Describes the basic concepts of spaceflight operations, for both human and unmanned missions, and explains the basic subsystems of a space vehicle. The relationship of spacecraft design and the very unique space environment are also laid out, and flight dynamics are taught as well as ground segment requirements.
Papers from the 14th SpaceOps Conference on: mission management (management tasks for designing, preparing and operating a particular mission), spacecraft operations (preparation and implementation of all activities to operate a space vehicle), and ground operations (preparation, qualification, and operations of a mission dedicated ground segment and appropriate infrastructure).
Papers from the 12th SpaceOps Conference on: mission prep and management (design, development, and planning), data and comms ground infrastructure, and mission execution (aspects of specific space missions during flight prep and operations).
Papers from the 13th SpaceOps Conference on: breakthrough technologies for space operations, mission design and concepts, ground system advances for efficient and secure operations, and mission operations.
Papers from the 9th SpaceOps Conference on: space vehicle prep and operations, ground operations (prep, qualification, and operations including control centers comms), and management tasks for preparing and operating a particular mission.
Over 50 countries have on-orbit satellites and commercial space presence is essential to commercial telecommunications and broadcasting, yet international space law is in its infancy. This book addresses the international regulatory framework as well as the emerging regulatory framework relating to commercial space programs, space tourism, and commercial space station facilities.
A thorough overview of space technology, ranging from launch systems, structures, power, thermal, communications, propulsion, and software, to entry, descent and landing, ground segment, robotics, and data systems, to technology and project management.

This practical handbook draws on leading aerospace experts to carry readers through mission design, from orbit selection to ground ops. SMAD III updates the technology, provides greater emphasis on small spacecraft design and the cost-reduction process, and includes more detail on multi-satellite manufacturing, space computers, payload design and autonomous systems.
The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) serves the DoD community as the largest central resource for DoD and government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and business related information available today
Science.gov searches over 60 databases and over 2200 selected websites from 15 federal agencies, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information including research and development results. Science.gov is governed by the interagency Science.gov Alliance.
