Spacecraft Mission Design

  1. Oct 29, 2005 #1
    I got this book(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1563470411/102-7983014-6314504?v=glance&n=283155&v=glance) by Charles brown from my institute library. Unfortunately they have misplaced the floppy disk containing Spacecraft Mission Design software- ORBWIN.
    Can anyone share the software or give me ideas on how to get it ?
    i searched on the net but found nothing.

    Is there any similar software for orbits determination etc ?

    You might be able to download the software from AIAA's website - http://www.aiaa.org/content.cfm?pageid=403&ID=523 , however you need a password. Perhaps this came with the book or purchase.

    See also http://www.aiaa.org/content.cfm?pageid=360&id=523 for other details.

    If one still has problems, then I would recommend contacting AIAA bookstore directly, and explain the situation. Perhaps they can provide a password.

    I strongly recommend buying AIAA products directly from AIAA, and also becoming a member if one is an aerospace engineer or student. Membership will get one discounts and access to a broad network of aerospace scientists and engineers.

    Thanks for a quick reply.
    I can't find the password in the book. Anybody knows where it is ?
    Can anyone who has access to it provide me ? Its around 1 mb only.

    I would expect the password to be unique with each purchase.

    Was the book purchased, new or used? If used, perhaps the original owner has the software.

    Otherwise, call the AIAA customer service and explain the situation, and perhaps they can give you a password.
