The Spacecraft Operability Concept

  • Jens Eickhoff
Part of the Springer Aerospace Technology book series (SAT)


The spacecraft operability concept, which will be explained in this chapter, covers diverse engineering topics such as the S/C modes, system autonomy and the like. They have already to be considered during S/C system conceptualization and have to be refined subsequently over the development phases – as was already expressed. And obviously these topics have to be treated during OBSW requirements definition, OBSW design and testing. However since these topics become fully visible not before the start of S/C operations tests and since these topics are only partly covered by OBC hardware or OBSW, they are treated in this part IV of the book in a consolidated manner.
