Advancing Propulsion for Hypersonic Flight

16 September 2018, 0800-1700 hrs
Revolutionary methods of high speed air-breathing propulsion (HAP) are needed to extend the flight regime of aircraft and improve Earth-to-orbit vehicles. This course explores the technologies required for the successful development of dual-mode scramjet engines for hypersonic aircraft, and it also addresses several combined cycle propulsion options for reusable aerospace vehicles. Using a solid theoretical background, we review the high-performance systems required for ram/scramjet operation in all hypersonic regimes, emphasizing vehicle integration and compatibility with the different applications. We will present the necessary background in high-temperature materials, aero-structures, and supersonic combustion kinetics needed to advance HAP technologies. We will also discuss new concepts of combined cycles proposed for space launch systems. More Details.

Space Standards and Architectures Course

16 September 2018, 0800-1700 hrs
This course is intended for individuals and organizations that desire to increase their teams’ understanding of the benefits of and the usability of (1) Space Standards and (2) Architecture Framework. More Details.

Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering

15-16 September 2018, 0800-1700 hrs
As Systems Engineering and Program Management have evolved since World War II, missions have to be achieved within the constraints of cost, schedule and expected performance.   Systems engineering is attempting to describe and define the optimal solution while the program management is attempting to determine the necessary work components and develop the plan.  Both are keys to the success of a program.  Bringing these two disciplines together with a common success measure requires the integration of functions within programs.  Taking this course will learn how to apply systems engineering processes, tools, methods and techniques on program management’s organizing and staffing, planning, performance measurement, decision, and cost control on how to execute an accurate Earned Value Management System (EVMS). More Details.
