The past 12 months have been a period of change for the RAF and, more generally, for Britain's military aviation. Significant commitments remain, most notably in the South Atlantic and in the on-going war against terrorism and in particular the demands of the enhanced British commitment in Afghanistan. The role of air power in the continuing conflict in Iraq remains crucial both in terms of logistics and in providing air support for British Forces on the ground. This book offers a comprehensive listing of all of Britain's military aircraft and helicopters and is essential reading for the enthusiast wishing to keep up to date.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Orbital Mechanics for Engineering Students, Third Edition (Aerospace Engineering)'
Orbital Mechanics for Engineering Students, Second Edition, provides an introduction to the basic concepts of space mechanics. These include vector kinematics in three dimensions; Newton's laws of motion and gravitation; relative motion; the vector-based solution of the classical two-body problem; derivation of Kepler's equations; orbits in three dimensions; preliminary orbit determination; and orbital maneuvers. The book also covers relative motion and the two-impulse rendezvous problem; interplanetary mission design using patched conics; rigid-body dynamics used to characterize the attitude of a space vehicle; satellite attitude dynamics; and the characteristics and design of multi-stage launch vehicles.
Each chapter begins with an outline of key concepts and concludes with problems that are based on the material covered. This text is written for undergraduates who are studying orbital mechanics for the first time and have completed courses in physics, dynamics, and mathematics, including differential equations and applied linear algebra. Graduate students, researchers, and experienced practitioners will also find useful review materials in the book.
* NEW: Reorganized and improved discusions of coordinate systems, new discussion on perturbations and quarternions
* NEW: Increased coverage of attitude dynamics, including new Matlab algorithms and examples in chapter 10
* New examples and homework problems
* Highly illustrated and fully supported with downloadable MATLAB algorithms for project and practical work; fully worked examples throughout; extensive homework exercises; Instructor's Manual and lecture slides.

Orbital mechanics is a cornerstone subject for aerospace engineering students. However, with its basis in classical physics and mechanics, it can be a difficult and weighty subject. Howard Curtis - Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle University, the US's #1 rated undergraduate aerospace school - focuses on what students at undergraduate and taught masters level really need to know in this hugely valuable text. Fully supported by the analytical features and computer based tools required by today's students, it brings a fresh, modern, accessible approach to teaching and learning orbital mechanics. A truly essential new resource.
* A complete, stand-alone text for this core aerospace engineering subject
* Richly-detailed, up-to-date curriculum coverage; clearly and logically developed to meet the needs of students
* Highly illustrated and fully supported with downloadable MATLAB algorithms for project and practical work; with fully worked examples throughout, Q&A material, extensive homework exercises and an Instructor's Manual.

Orbital mechanics is a cornerstone subject for aerospace engineering students. Maintaining the focus of the first edition, the author provides the foundation needed to understand the subject and proceed to advanced topics. Starting with the solution of the two-body problem and formulas for the different kinds of orbits, the text moves on to Kepler's equations, orbits in three dimensions, orbital elements from observations, orbital maneuvers, orbital rendezvous and interplanetary missions. This is followed by an introduction to spacecraft dynamics and a final chapter on basic rocket dynamics. The author's teach-by-example approach emphasizes the analytical procedures and computer-implemented algorithms required by today's students. There are a large number of worked examples, illustrations, end of chapter exercises (with answers) as well as many MATLABŪ programs for use in homework and projects. The text can be used for one and two semester courses in space mechanics.
* A new section on numerical integration methods applicable to space mechanics problems
* A more centralized and improved discussion of coordinate systems and Euler angle sequences
* An expanded development of relative motion in orbit
* A new section on quaternions
* New worked-out examples, illustrations and homework problems
* New algorithms, MATLABŪ scripts and simulations
* Instructor's manual and lecture slides available online
* Included online testing and assessment component helps students assess their knowledge of the topics
