Synopsis

Over the past decade or so a great many new terms have emerged with the rapid development of spacecraft, the rapid extension of spacecraft exploits, and the commencement of routine space flights. This dictionary covers the entire complex of specialist terms encountered in the contemporary scientific-technical literature on aircraft and spacecraft engineering. A number of unclear or particularly complicated terms have had explanations added to promote lucidity. The work contains approximately 35,000 specialist terms in Russian, English and German. In the case of translations from English and or German, the user is referred to the alphabetically arranged index and the decimal numerical order in the main part.

The basic word categories cover the following partial fields pertaining to aerospace engineering and related scientific-technological disciplines: the scientific technological classification and operation of atmospheric and orbital flying vehicles (subsonic, transsonic, supersonic and hypersonic aeroplanes, short-take-off and vertical take-off aeroplanes, helicopters, hovercraft, space vehicles, space rocket systems, take-off and landing modules, orbital stations and orbital complexes, spacecraft etc.)

; the construction, principles of mechanism, design and production, characteristic values and special features during the flights of different flying vehicles; aero-engines and rocket motors, power systems, their special features and breakdown, power systems of spacecraft, aviation fuels and rocket propellants; on-board and ground equipment of aeronautics and astronautics; navigation systems, control systems, guidance systems, life-support systems of flying vehicles; and materials and technologies in the production field of aircraft and spacecraft engineering, ground and flight operations, ground and flight testing and investigations of flying vehicles and their systems, scientific-methodological fundamentals and the technology of aerodynamics and space experiments.
