I am very interested in the engineering aspects of the Voyager mission but I have been unable to find many papers online. There are some like:
Smith et.al.: Voyager Imaging Experiment
Ludwig and Taylor: Voyager Telecommunications
Kohlhase: The Voyager Neptune Travel Guide
Kohlhase and Penzo: Voyager Mission Description.
There are also some good books but they are not very detailed.
A lot of stuff is published in journals I have no access for and / or I have been unable to locate. Press kits and other official releases are very hard to find too. I am still hoping to find the launch and encounter kits. A
online search for MJS 77 is even more disappointing.
I am specially interested in:
- design and function of the several subsystems (computers, DTR, data handling, data compression, software, star trackers, propulsion, scan platform etc.)
- performance and anomalies of subsystems and science instruments
- TCM's, encounter sequences, imaging campains, data rates, downlink performance etc
I am less interested (at the moment) in scientific results and related papers.
Is there anybody able and willing to help. Thank you.
