Hardback

$79.95

Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics


"Satellite communications have been in service for more than 40 years and represent by far the largest
space industry, with

annual revenues now at $30 billion a year and over 35,000 employees worldwide.
Satellite technology may be viewed by some as a mature market, but this book will explore many
exciting new technologies and services yet to be developed. A new demand for adva
nced Internet and
IP services, entertainment, and multicasting services as well as advanced applications related to
multimedia, telecommuting, etc. are the driving forces behind new satellite and communications
research and development.


This book challeng
es the conventional view of the future of satellite communications in terms of
technology and services. The text includes not only detailed descriptions for near
-
term trends but also
includes descriptions of far
-
future trends.


Although this book addresses

very advanced technology and applications, it does not contain a large
amount of equations or technical jargon. College students at the graduate and undergraduate level and
professionals in the field will gain an understanding of how future projects in sp
ace communications will
unfold. Business executives and other telecommunications and networking personnel who are
interested in monitoring future trends will be interested in this book as well.


Much of the content was originally written or presented at pr
ofessional conferences recently, but the
book also includes new material developed especially for this volume. This book will give readers many
hints and insights for future development of satellite communications."

$99.95

AIAA Education Series


"This book provides a comprehensive treatment of dynamics of space systems starting with the basic
fundamentals. This single source contains topics ranging from basic kinematics and dynamics to mor
e
advanced celestial mechanics; yet all material is presented in a consistent manner. The reader is
guided through the various derivations and proofs in a tutorial way. The use of ""cookbook"" formulas
is avoided. Instead, the reader is led to understand t
he underlying principle of the involved equations
and shown how to apply them to various dynamical systems.


The book is divided into two parts. Part I covers analytical treatment of topics such as basic dynamic
principles up to advanced energy concept. Sp
ecial attention is paid to the use of rotating reference
frames that often occur in aerospace systems. Part II covers basic celestial mechanics treating the two
-
body problem, restricted three
-
body problem, gravity field modeling, perturbation methods, spac
ecraft
formation flying, and orbit transfers.


A Matlab kinematics toolbox provides routines, which are developed in the rigid body kinematics
chapter. A solutions manual is also available for professors. Matlab is a registered trademark of The

Flight Testing of Fixed
-
Wing Aircraft

Ralph D. Kimberlin

Hardback

$89.95

AIAA Education Series

The measurement of performance during an airplane's flight testing is one of the more important tasks
to be accomplished during its

development as it impacts on both the airplane's safety and its
marketability. Performance sells airplanes.


This book discusses performance for both propeller
-
driven and jet aircraft. However, its emphasis is on
propeller
-
driven aircraft since much of th
e methodology for testing of propeller driven aircraft has been
lost with time.


The book is intended as a text for those teaching courses in fixed
-
wing flight testing. It is also a
reference for those involved in flight test on a daily basis or those who
need knowledge of flight testing
to manage those activities. The book is divided into three sections. The first two sections
--
Performance, and Stability and Control
--
are arranged so that they might be taught as a semester
course at the upper
-
level undergra
duate or graduate level. The third section, Hazardous Flight Tests,
provides information based upon more than 30 years of experience in performing and directing such
tests and serves as a valuable reference.

The Fundamen
tals of Aircraft Combat Survivability: Analysis and Design, 2
nd

Edition

Robert E Ball

Mixed media

$99.95

AIAA Education Series


"In 1985, the AIAA published the first comprehensive textbook on aircraft combat survivability entitled,
“The Fundamentals

of Aircraft combat Survivability Analysis and Design.” Since then, approximately
10,000 copies of the first edition of the book have been sold in five printings. It is still the only book of
its kind and is required reading for anyone involved in design
of air combat vehicles.


In 2002, aircraft combat survivability is now an established design discipline for U.S. military aircraft.
More importantly survivability is now an essential part of the U.S. Department of Defense acquisition
process. Furthermore,
improving public health, safety, and survivability is now woven throughout the
civil and commercial sector. From infant car seats to the design of aircraft cargo bay structures that
can withstand internal bomb blasts, the government is taking the lead in e
stablishing survivability
standards.


The extensively illustrated second edition of the textbook presents the fundamentals of the aircraft
combat survivability design discipline as defined by the DoD military standards and acquisition
processes. It provide
s the history of, the concepts for, the assessment methodology, and the design
technology for combat survivability analysis and design of fixed
-

and rotary
-
wing aircraft, UAVs, and
missiles. Each chapter specifies learning objectives; stresses important po
ints; and includes notes,
references, bibliography, and questions.


“The Fundamentals of Aircraft Combat Survivability: Analysis and Design on CD
-
ROM“ is included with
your purchase of the hardcover. The CD
-
ROM gives you the portability and searchability
that you need
in your busy environment. It is considerably smaller and lighter than the textbook and can be
downloaded on to a laptop computer so it is available when away from the office or traveling. It can
also be searched to quickly locate all location
s of a particular word or phrase.

Economic Principles Applied to Space Industry Decisions

Joel S Greenberg

Hardback

$94.95

Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics


"This is not an economics book. It is
a book about the application of economic principles and concepts
in decision making related to space activities. The book is primarily tutorial and elaborates upon
concepts and methodology and their applications. Emphasis is placed upon applications with t
ypical
results of performed analyses presented to demonstrate concepts and methods.


The use of mathematical and simulation models serves as the underpinning for much of the presented
materials. A number of models are described with numerous applications p
resented. The specific
models considered have been selected to demonstrate the role that a structured thought process can
play in the decision process. Since most decisions relating to technology development, product design,
capital expenditures, and inves
tments involve uncertainty and risk, a number of the selected models,
developed methodologies, and presented examples explicitly and quantitatively consider uncertainty
and risk.


The objective of this book is to put economic analysis into perspective wit
h respect to real
-
world
decision making in the space industry. It will expand the perspective of the reader with respect to the
type of tools and analyses that might be brought to bear on complex business and government
problems."

Space Ve
hicle Design, 2
nd

Edition

Publish Date Jan. 2004

Michael Griffin

James French

Hardback

$94.95

AIAA Education Series


"Much has changed, both in the space community and in the larger world, in the thirteen years since
the first edition of this classi
c, best
-
selling book appeared.


While there is now a huge collection of core knowledge, tutorial material, mathematical “applets”, and
design data available about spacecraft systems engineering which did not exist when the first edition
was published, the

second edition continues to fulfill the book’s original goal, linking and integrating
the many disciplines relevant to the field of space systems engineering in a way that is impossible
when they are considered separately, or even in one text that is the
product of many authors. The text
starts with an overall description of the basic mission considerations for spacecraft design, including
space environment, astrodynamics, and atmospheric reentry. Then the various subsystems are
discussed, and in each case
, both the theoretical background and the current engineering practice are
fully explained.


Some material has been updated to make the treatment consistent with current experience and
practice in the field. At the same time, there is much that remains re
levant from what are now the
earlier decades of the space program. Nothing of real value has been omitted merely on the grounds
that it is old. This edition contains a new chapter on reliability analysis, much new technical material in
other sections, and
many homework problems. The book provides the space systems engineer the
tools to evaluate the overall impact of candidate design concepts on the various component
subsystems and the integrated system leading to the final design selection.


Despite the inc
redible richness of web
-
based resources for the modern engineer, it remains true that
most websites and links are exceedingly volatile. For that reason, the authors have chosen to include
and reference only that which is accessible through archived referen
ces, creating an authoritative text
that provides both suitable materials for senior
-
level courses in aerospace engineering and a useful
reference for the practicing aerospace engineer."

The Missile Defense Equation Factors for Decision Ma
king

Publish Date Jan. 2004

Peter J Mantle

Mixed media

$94.95

General Publication


"Peter J. Mantle, a former U.S. Navy program manager and Pentagon insider, has written this book to
help decision makers sort out the costs and technical merits of co
mpeting missile defense technologies
now in development or under research.


Corporate officials generally like to avoid talking about the costs of missile defense systems and they
tend to make claims of performance and technical risks using terms and units

of measure that are
difficult to compare from one system to another.


Mantle unravels this trend by translating competing measures ñ such as Mach numbers
-

into standard,
metric units. He explores the history of missile defense and standardizes the confus
ing world of
missile
-
defense terminology. He devotes an entire chapter to defining life
-
cycle costs, trends in
budgets and the actual costs of the sub systems aboard ships, aircrafts, satellites, and missiles.


The book is targeted not just for elite decis
ion makers, but rather anyone in the missile
-
defense
decision chain, from Pentagon procurement officers to members of Congress.


The book is organized into chapters that discuss the specific criteria decision makers should combine
when evaluating missile
-
d
efense hardware: performance, cost, schedule and technical risk.


Perhaps most importantly, the book concludes with chapters describing the techniques and
perspectives decision makers should rely on to unemotionally evaluate missile
-
defense technologies."

Unmanned Aviation A Brief History of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Publish Date Feb. 2004

Laurence R. "Nuke" Newcome

Paperback

$N/A

General Publication


"The more he learned about the history of unmanned aircraft, the more astounded aviat
ion expert
Laurence R. “Nuke” Newcome became.


In the 1990s, the author was overseeing development of two of the Pentagon’s most advanced UAVs.
As he looked at the history of unmanned planes, he noticed that each time a conflict broke out well
-
intentioned

American engineers would get to work on the latest unmanned concepts all but blind to the
work of those who came before them.


In this book, Newcome chronicles the long history of unmanned aircraft in hopes of ending this cycle of
ignorance. Years of dup
licative efforts have cost the taxpayers in wasted time and money, he alleges.
“If this brief history can help prevent such ‘reinventions of the wheel’ within unmanned aviation
endeavors in the future, then it will have served its purpose,” Newcome writes.


Newcome traces the family tree of unmanned aircraft all the way back to their roots as “aerial
torpedoes,” which were the equivalent of today’s cruise missiles. He discusses the work of leading
aerospace pioneers whose efforts in the area of unmanned avi
ation have largely been ignored by
history.


The book chronicles the use of unmanned aircraft in times and places where you might not expect
them, such during the Cold War, in Vietnam and in Israel. Details on the overall trend in UAV design,
for instance

the recent transition from remotely
-
piloted planes to the quest for truly autonomous
vehicles, is covered, as well as possible future breakthroughs in UAV development."

Spatial Disorientation in Aviation

Publish Date Jan. 2004

Fred H. Pr
evic

William Ercoline

Hardback

$N/A

General Publication


"Two experts who worked together for a decade as part of a U.S. Air Force project to understand and
mitigate spatial disorientation among pilots have assembled this volume to help others capita
lize on
the group’s research.


Spatial disorientation has been blamed for 25 percent of all fatal mishaps in military aviation and has
been named as a factor in many high
-
profile civilian accidents, such as the death of John F. Kennedy,
Jr. and his wife, C
arolyn Bessette Kennedy. It occurs when a pilot’s sensory systems, such as his
vestibular or balance system, cause him to misinterpret his position in flight relative to Earth or other
aircraft. Often, the pilot does not know he is disoriented until it is
too late.


Dr. Fred Previc and William Ercoline studied spatial disorientation together at Brooks Air Force Base,
near San Antonio, Texas, now known as Brooks City Base. They collaborate on the first chapter of the
volume and call on leading experts from t
he United States, Canada and Great Britain to contribute
chapters on specific aspects of disorientation.


“Our purpose was to put together all the different specialties of spatial disorientation in one textbook,
which had never been done before,” Ercoline
explains.


The book examines the long history of spatial disorientation in flight, describes the movements of
aircraft in mathematical detail, and explains how these movements can conspire to fool human sensory
systems that evolved for life on the ground.
The book examines the structure and functions of the
vestibular organs of the inner ear and their limitations under low
-
visibility flight situations.


The book also examines the visual mechanisms that contribute to perceptions of self motion and
describes
the contribution of psychological impairments in spatial disorientation. The book defines the
types of visual and non
-
visual illusions pilots sometimes experience in flight.


Those chapters set the stage for a highly detailed examination of countermeasures
, including ground
-
based training methodologies, in
-
flight sorties, instrument training, and display design.


Much of the book is technical, but it is also rich in real
-
world statistics and anecdotes about accidents
and close calls that have been attribute
d to spatial disorientation."

hydrogen life testing programs that had been or were being carried out for
low Earth orbit (LEO) applications.

The cycling programs, some of which are still in progress, were
conducted under different sponsorships and carried out at different testing facilities.


Data presented in this book generally reflect the order in which the phases of the project developed
and expanded. The chapters have been divided into different categories. The first section addresses the
goal of minimizing the rates of the different capacity loss mechanisms during long
-
term cycling. The
second addresses the goal of maximizing the usabili
ty of these cells and batteries for different overall
mission goals. The last section contains a few overall summary statements and conclusions."

"A decade ago, Russian scientist Staly A. Losev assembled top scientists at Moscow State University
and invited them to pool their knowledge about the changes gases undergo in a variety of aerospace
settings from combustion of rocket fuels to hypersonic flow paths to the exteriors of atmospheric
reentry vehicles. The work grew into the AVAGADRO Laborator
y of Moscow State University’s Institute
of Mechanics.


The models and formulas produced by Losev’s AVAGADRO Laboratory are contained in the second
edition of the textbook, “Physical and Chemical Processes in Gas Dynamics.”


The text provides a valuable
window into the design philosophies and models that govern former
-
Soviet engineers and scientists. “Normally, these things are not accessible to U.S. engineers,” said Paul
Zarchan of MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, Editor
-
in

Applied Mathematics in Integrated Navigation Systems, 2
nd

Edition

Publish Date Nov. 2003

Robert M Rogers

Hardback

$N/A

AIAA Education Series


"The subject of integrated navigation systems covered in this

book is designed for those directly
involved with the design, integration, and test and evaluation of navigation systems. It is assumed that
the reader has a background in mathematics, including calculus. An integrated navigation system is the
combination

of an onboard navigation solution (position, velocity, and attitude) and independent
navigation data (aids to navigation) to update or correct navigation solutions. In this book, this
combination is accomplished with Kalman filter algorithms.


This presen
tation is segmented into two parts. In the first part, elements of basic mathematics,
kinematics, equations describing navigation systems/sensors and their error models, aids to
navigation, and Kalman filtering are developed. Detailed derivations are prese
nted and examples are
given to aid in the understanding of these elements of integrated navigation systems. Problems are
included to expand the application of the materials presented.


The second edition includes software, additional background material a
nd exercises, and additional
applications. Selected Chapter, Section and Exercise related software is provided in a companion CD to
enhance the learning experience of the reader. The included software has been developed using
MATLAB/Simulink(TM) version 6.
5 by The MathWorks, Inc. Additional material includes: integrating
navigation aides for a navigation system’s vertical axis; exercises that broaden the scope of problems
encountered in integrated navigation systems; and the general problem of attitude dete
rmination and
estimation whether for terrestrial or space applications. This edition provides a more complete
foundation for addressing the different aspects of integrated navigation systems."
