Cost Effective Space Mission Operations
Squibb, Boden & Larson
Date: 2006, Second Edition
Cost-Effective Space Mission Operations describes the relationship between mission operations and the other elements of the space mission as well as specific operations tasks. This book defines a process that helps the mission operations manager translate mission objectives and requirements into a viable mission operations concept. The mission operations manager must develop this operations concept early enough, during concept exploration, so that the project manager can trade the future cost of operations against current development costs.
Cost-Effective Space Mission Operations includes detailed descriptions of thirteen mission operations functions, provides a process for developing a mission operations concept, and describes a model for evaluating the cost and complexity of an operations system. The book also covers how to conduct routine, launch and early-orbit, and special operations, as well as how to operate interplanetary, international, microsatellite, and crewed missions.
