Spacecraft Thermal Control Training

Spacecraft Thermal Control Training:

Spacecraft Thermal Control Training Course with Hands-on Exercises (Onsite, Online, and Classroom Live)

Spacecraft Thermal Control Training course appropriate for System Engineers/Managers with an interest in improving their understanding of spacecraft thermal design or Engineers who want to get an overview of thermal systems engineering process. All phases of thermal design, integration, testing and in-flight operations are covered in enough depth to give a deeper understanding of the design process.

The goals are to have every student understand (1) the “bigger picture” system and tradeoff issues (2) thermal analysis, design, thermal devices, and thermal testing, and (3) how the thermal design interacts with the overall system design and fits into the overall picture of satellite design. Case studies, lessons learned, and interactive problems, illustrate the importance of thermal design and the current state of the art.
