Summary

Figure 9.21 is an exploded view of a spacecraft that displays many of the subsystem elements that were discussed here, thus providing a brief summary of the contents of the last three chapters.

Figure 9.21: An exploded view of a spacecraft showing the various elements of the subsystem design. The example shown is that of a communications satellite, so in this case the payload is identified with the communications subsystem. Key: ACS, attitude control subsystem; Comms S, communications subsystem; PS, power subsystem; Prop S, propulsion subsystem; TCS, thermal control subsystem. (Backdrop image courtesy of ESA.)
