"Cost-effective space mission operations" describes the relationship between mission operations and the other elements of the space mission and discusses 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 the project manager can trade the future cost of operations against current development costs.
The first two chapters describe how the mission-operations element blends in with the other elements of a space mission. Chapters three through seven describe the thirteen mission operations functions, provide a process for developing a mission operations concept, and present a model for evaluating the cost and complexity of operations system. Chapters eight through sixteen describe how we conduct routine, launch and early-orbit, and special operations, as well as how we plan and analyze the mission. The last four chapters describe how we operate interplanetary, international, microsatellite, and crewed missions.
This book is intended for professionals and students involved in systems engineering and operations in space, including program managers, mission operations managers, spacecraft engineers and designers, project scientists, and operators. It is suitable as a textbook for a course in space mission operations, a supplementary text in other courses, or a professional reference.
