AIAA, 1999 - Technology & Engineering - 707 pages
0 Reviews
Annotation Collects many of the ideas, fundamental principles, and technology rudiments that can profoundly change the manner by which aerospace systems are designed, engineered, and assembled. The concepts presented advance the use of microengineering principles to impart intelligence, volition, and motility to systems on the miniature scale, thereby effecting a change in the paradigm of how aerospace systems should be developed, maintained, and used. The 17 chapters cover the general areas of materials/mechanics/processing and packaging, microsystem devices, distributed system architectures, and satellite subsystems. The book is written in a tutorial style providing worked examples, key equations, and process sequences. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
