The module Spacecraft Technology 1 coveres the theory and physics of rocketry and astronautics. The evaluating and analytical command of this expertise cluster is a fundamental prerequisite for the professional qualification of an academically educated rocket engineer. To proof the learning achievement of this study cluster, the students have to pass a written exam pressed for time. The expected learning outcomes are verified by a written exam of 90 min duration.The exam comprises typically 20 tasks, which are short questions as well as calculation problems with a partitioning of about 50% to 50%. To work on the exam, the students are provided with a formulary; besides a non-programmable calculator, no further auxiliary material is allowed.

Note in view of the limitations on university operations as a result of the CoViD19 pandemic: If the basic conditions (hygiene, physical distance rules, etc.) for a classroom-based examination cannot be met, the planned form of examination can be changed to a written or oral online examination in accordance with §13a APSO. The decision about this change will be announced as soon as possible, but at least 14 days before the date of the examination by the examiner after consultation with the board of examiners of the respective study program.

After the successful conclusion of the module, the students are able to apply the basic physics of rocketry and propulsion to carry out a first order desing of a launcher system with respect to the design budgets of mass, power and volume. The students are able to analyse the complexity and the limitations of launching space craft systems and payloads into orbit. Furthermore, the students are able to apply the basic theory of astronautics, especially that of orbital trajectories and transfer maneuvers, with respect to the space craft's propulsion efficiency and the mission time. In general, the students are able to evaluate typical baseline launcher concepts and mission concepts with respect to the typical trade-offs in rocketry, namely mass and power.
The module provides knowledge of the fundamentals of Rocketry: Rocket Equation; Rocket Staging; Rocket Propulsion (chemical and electrical); Launcher Systems; Space Environment; Rocket Ascent; Astrodynamics; Trajectories; Orbit Transfers
The module consists of a lecture and an ecercise. In the lecture, the topics are taught with the help of presentations and black board sketches. The accompanying excercises repeat and engross the crucial topics. With the help of rough calculations and rule of thumb methods, the studens lern how to do first order system evaluations.
