Advanced Design Problems in Aerospace Engineering, Volume 1: Advanced Aerospace Systems presents six authoritative lectures on the use of mathematics in the conceptual design of various types of aircraft and spacecraft. It covers the following topics: design of rocket-powered orbital spacecraft (Miele/Mancuso), design of Moon missions (Miele/Mancuso), design of Mars missions (Miele/Wang), design of an experimental guidance system with a perspective flight path display (Sachs), neighboring vehicle design for a two-stage launch vehicle (Well), and controller design for a flexible aircraft (Hanel/Well). This is a reference book of interest to engineers and scientists working in aerospace engineering and related topics.

Developing a single-pilot, all-weather nap-of-the-earth (NOE) capability requires fully automatic NOE (ANOE) navigation and flight control. Innovative guidance and control concepts are investigated in a four-fold research effort that: (1) organizes the on-board computer-based storage and real-time updating of NOE terrain profiles and obstacles in course-oriented coordinates indexed to the mission flight plan; (2) defines a class of automatic anticipative pursuit guidance algorithms and necessary data preview requirements to follow the vertical, lateral, and longitudinal guidance commands dictated by the updated flight profiles; (3) automates a decision-making process for unexpected obstacle avoidance; and (4) provides several rapid response maneuvers. Acquired knowledge from the sensed environment is correlated with the forehand knowledge of the recorded environment (terrain, cultural features, threats, and targets), which is then used to determine an appropriate evasive maneuver if a nonconformity of the sensed and recorded environments is observed. This four-fold research effort was evaluated in both fixed-base and moving-base real-time piloted simulations; thereby, providing a practical demonstration for evaluating pilot acceptance of the automated concepts, supervisory override, manual operation, and re-engagement of the automatic system. Volume one describes the major components of the guidance and control laws as well as the results of the piloted simulations. Volume two describes the complete mathematical model of the fully automatic guidance system for rotorcraft NOE flight following planned flight profiles.

Written with the laugh-out-loud humor that can only come from someone well acquainted with the mishaps of everyday corporate life, After the Beep is a highly entertaining, always amusing selection of real-and really outlandish-communications delivered via the information superhighway all day, every day in our world of real-time messaging.Filled with humorous vignettes told through e-mails, text messages, and transcripts of voice mails, After the Beep will ring with familiarity to anyone who has experienced the strange and unusual communiqués that result from the confusing quagmire of America's convoluted corporate environment. Seasoned businesswoman Kathleen Heck pokes fun at people through their follies and inane comments while depicting how work life in America can turn innocent messages into ridiculous directives.Each entry is followed by Heck's witty commentary, providing a gut-busting sketch of daily corporate life. From the mundane halls of a stodgy mortgage company to the overly exuberant newsletter of a college athletic department, After the Beep captures the true comedy of supposedly professional communication gone hopelessly, and hilariously, awry.

Sie kommt von der Erde. Ihr Schicksal steht in den Sternen. Jarra ist ein «Earth Girl». Während sich der Rest der Menschheit aufmacht, fremde Galaxien zu entdecken, ist Jarra zu einem Leben auf dem alten Heimatplaneten verdammt: Aufgrund eines Gendefekts kann sie nicht teleportieren. Sie gehört zu den Ausgestoßenen, den Wertlosen. Aber Jarra hat einen Traum: Sie will normal sein, will wie alle anderen studieren. Ihre Leidenschaft ist die Frühgeschichte – der faszinierende Zeitraum vor Erfindung der Portaltechnik. Damals lebten die Menschen in riesigen Städten wie New York, die heute nur noch Ruinen sind. Um ihren Traum wahr werden zu lassen, muss Jarra ihre Identität verleugnen. Sie ist bereit, diesen Preis zu zahlen. Doch als ein schreckliches Unglück droht und nur Jarra es aufhalten kann, beginnt sie sich zu fragen, ob es wirklich so erstrebenswert ist, normal zu sein ...

Mumble ist noch ein flauschiges Eulenküken, als Martin Windrow sie bei sich aufnimmt. 15 Jahre lang sollten die beiden unzertrennlich bleiben. Anrührend, charmant und mit unnachahmlich britischem Humor erzählt Windrow, wie die kleine Eule seinen Alltag auf den Kopf stellt. Er berichtet von Mumbles Leidenschaft, Schnürsenkel zu jagen, von ihren lausigen Landungen nach waghalsigen Flugmanövern und ihrem großen Bedürfnis nach Streicheleinheiten. Amüsiert lässt er die Reaktionen seiner irritierten Mitmenschen Revue passieren, die aber irgendwann akzeptieren: Windrow und Mumble sind Freunde geworden. Die Geschichte einer ungewöhnlichen Beziehung – die uns en passant alles über die Biologie und Mythologie der Eulen lehrt.
