Название статьи: Hubble Space Telescope Systems Engineering Case Study Автор: James J. Mattice Abstract 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 HST. 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.
