"Introduction to project work and evaluation of proposed space projects. Design of a spacecraft in a computer\r\nenvironment. Organization of, and preparation of documents for a Preliminary Design Review (PDR). Oral and written\r\npresentation of the PDR for clients of the project. The client could in the normal case be a project group with\r\nstudents that work in parallel with the construction of a space instrument, which in principle could be carried by the\r\nspacecraft that is designed in this project. \n\nOutcome:\nThe student shall obtain knowledge and experience on how a smaller spacecraft can be designed as far as possible\r\nby specifications and where the subsystems of the spacecraft are integrated to a spacecraft in a computer\r\nenvironment. The student shall acquire an effective work process, including meeting preparations, commitment,\r\nplanning, initiative and be able to interact with other students in the working form of concurrent engineering. The\r\nstudent's design choice must be based on science and proven experience and the solutions must be sufficiently\r\nspecified to form a basis for further work with the design process, which must be stated in the report produced as a\r\nresult of the work." .

"Course Contents Spacecraft and launcher structures are subjected to extreme environments, making their design and development and the\nverification thereof (DVV) very complex. In this course\nthe design of the main spacecraft structure, the structural behaviour of non-structural spacecraft components and their interaction\nwill be illustrated and addressed through the design of the structure of a spaceborne instrument. Thermal elastics and dynamics\nof the instrument structure will be considered. In small groups, participating students will have to design their own instrument\nstructure, addressing both thermo-elastics and vibrations. Verification and validation of the designs will be addressed as well.\nThe course will consist of seven weekly modules. In these modules the following topics will be covered:\n- Introduction\n- Thermo-Elastics\n- Vibrations\n- Systems Engineering\n- Verification and Validation\nThe order of the subjects may differ from the above list. The course structure will be explained in detail in the first weekly\nmodule. Students are requested to reserve all scheduled timeslots in their agendas.\nEach module will consist of a combination of learning activities, e.g. reading suggested papers, watching videos and small\nassignments.\nNote that, the course will require group work. Groups will be formed in the first week of the course. Students who are not part of\na group cannot participate in the course. For the purpose of the course, each group will be considered to be a company that tries\nto win the bid of a large space organization to engineer a space instrument.\nAt the end of the course, a mini-symposium will be organized in which each group presents their design for the space instrument\nstructure.\nStudy Goals The overall educational goal of the course is to provide students with an advanced understanding of the design, development and\nverification of spacecraft. Successful students will be able to:\n- Interpret and analyze a requirement specification for a spacecraft payload or instrument\n- Assess what the design drivers for the structural subsystem of a spacecraft payload or instrument are.\n- Describe how vibration and thermo-elastic considerations affect the design choices and interact with each other.\n- Develop a conceptual design and perform initial sizing by analysis of the structural (and to some extent, thermal) subsystem of\na spacecraft payload or instrument.\n- Describe in detail how the design of a structural subsystem of a spacecraft payload or instrument can be verified and validated" .

"Course Contents The course covers the engineering of small satellites. The concept and definition of micro-, nano-, pico-, and femto-satellites is\nintroduced along with the past, present, and future of small satellites in general. The course comprises seven to eight lectures,\npartly from professionals in the space industry. The lectures are intended to familiarise the students with current industry trends\nand state-of the art research in small satellite engineering. The lectures vary each year and potential lecture topics include\ncommunications, AOCS, onboard computer, distributed space systems, miniaturised payloads, small satellite missions and\napplications, etc.\nStudy Goals The course will enable students to design and engineer small satellite missions. The high-level learning objectives of the course\nare:\nThe students shall be able to\n explain key aspects of small satellite missions\n explain and describe elements in the architecture of a spacecraft mission\n discuss in detail at least one element in the architecture of a spacecraft mission\n present and defend their design of an element in the architecture of a spacecraft mission\n show familiarity with current trends in space industry and small satellite research" .
