COURSE OVERVIEW

Micro Electro Mechanical Systems in Space Training course on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and Microstructures for Aerospace Applications establishes a strong foundation for current and future practitioners. MEMS is an interdisciplinary field requiring knowledge in electronics, micro-mechanisms, processing, physics, fluidics, packaging, and materials just to name a few of the skills. It is to that group of broad-ranging disciplines that this course is directed. The material is designed and presented for the: systems engineer, flight assurance manager, project lead, technologist, program management, system lead engineers, and others including the scientist searching for new instrumentation capabilities as a practical guide to MEMS in aerospace applications.

The course provides a mix of general background and specific details to envision and support the insertion of MEMS in future flight missions. In order to nurture the vision to use MEMS in micro spacecraft – or even as spacecraft –an overview of the demonstrations of MEMS in space is provided. This highly topical course provides guidelines and materials for the end user to draw upon in order to conceive, implement, integrate, and qualify MEMS for future space missions.
