Название статьи: Hubble Space Telescope Systems Engineering Case Study
Автор: James J. Mattice
The case study provides the information about the Hubble Space Telecsope (HST),
histirical facts of its tumultuous development and some of the most significant
HST learning principles to be explored by systems engineers.
Applicable systems engineering principles and the effects of communication and
the environment challenge the ability to provide a balanced technical solution.
Illustration of the development and acquisition joint complex systems of the
NASA systems engineering process is the main aim of this detailed case study.
At the beginning, five major learning principles were presented. They are
considered as the key points of facilitation learning long-term consequences of the
systems engineering and programmatic decisions on program success.
The special attention was given to identify the phases in the systems engineering
lifecycle and necessary process and systems management support. Key systems
engineering concepts and responsibilities which represent them were investigated
and shown in Table 1-1 (p. 5).
Also apart from the historical context the work includes the description of HST
system design, HST major elements and list of the science instruments aboard the
To sum up, HST and its servicing missions not only have been key to
implementation of NASA’s national science goals for space exploration and
discovery of our physical origins, but also became the remarkably successful
scientific and educational outcomes of system enigeeniring.
