Spacecraft Sensors, the first of its kind, offers acomprehensive review of many aspects and intricacies of sensorsused in the spacecraft industry. It covers sensor developmentfrom concept, design, and cost, to building, testing, interfacing,integrating, and on-orbit operation. It is intended for thespecialist or non-specialist engineer, scientist, and thoseinvolved in the business aspect of the spacecraft industry. Focusing on how these various disciplines contribute to thedevelopment of a sensor used in space, this key text: * Explains how mathematics, physics, business, andengineering-based concepts are used to develop and design a sensorwhich complies with a set of specific requirements. * Discusses essential topics such as cost estimation, signalprocessing, noise reduction, filters, phased arrays, radars,optics, and radiometers used in space operation. * Covers a range of typical sensors used in the spacecraftindustry such as infrared, passive microwave, radars and spacebasedGPS sensors. * Concludes each chapter with examples of past and currentorbiting sensors such as DSP, SBIRS, CHAMP, LANDSAT, and GOES toillustrate how concepts are applied. * Includes the Matlab codes used to create the example plots in order to give the reader a starting point for furtheranalysis Spacecraft Sensors is an invaluable resource forengineers, technical consultants, those in the business division,and research scientists associated with spacecraft projects. It is also an excellent textbook for undergraduate and postgraduatestudents studying the development, design and applications ofspacebased sensors.
