No requirements.

Syllabus of lectures:

1) Introduction and overview of subsystems of spacecrafts and their functions

2) Construction ? basics of main structure of spacecrafts, differences between launcher and payload, influence of varying-G, vibrations and space environment

3) Attitude determination and control systems ? rotation of free gyroscope, passive and active methods of stabilization in microgravity, attitude determination

4) Control systems ? HW and SW architecture, telemetry, feedback, autonomous systems

5) Power systems I ? capabilities and parameters of power sources fo spaceflight, power requirements of various subsystems, power management

6) Power systems I ? solar panels, influence of orbit on insolation, degradation of solar panels, radioisotope sources, thermoelectric sources and reactors, primary batteries and accumulators, another power sources, external delivery of power

7) Navigation ? methods of position and attitude determination, optical, radio and radar systems GPS

8) Propulsion ? primary and attitude control propulsion, types of propulsion and their application fields, chemical and physical propulsion

9) Communication ? methods of remote communication, radio communication, frequency bands, bandwidth, technical means (antennas, transmitters, receivers), optical communication, influence of Eart atmosphere

10) Payload ? types of payload and their requirements

11) Life support systems ? living conditions requierements of complex organisms and humans, delivery and recyclation of air and water, forced movement of air, life support systems of spaceships and pressure suits
