The goal of this project was to assemble a space mechanisms design guidelines
handbook for use by NASA and its industry collaborators. The handbook
presents a categorical overview of space mechanism design, qualification, and
application issues. The handbook is being distributed on DVD-ROM.
The DVD is in pdf (Portable Document Format) developed by Adobe Acrobat.
In preparation for the Space Mechanisms Handbook, a "Lessons Learned"
study was performed to assess reoccuring problems and future needs in
space mechanism design. Three engineers from
Mechanical Technology Incorporated
co-authored the lessons learned study. This study is being
distributed with the handbook on DVD. The study is divided into
two volumes: a summary of lessons learned and a literature
review. The first volume is available in the NASA Space Mechanisms
Handbook and Reference Guide DVD and as via this link ...
