Damping in the space industry context refers to the process of reducing or dissipating unwanted vibrations, oscillations, or oscillatory motion in spacecraft, satellite systems, and other space-related equipment. Effective damping is crucial to ensure the stability, performance, and longevity of these systems, particularly during launch, operation, and maneuvers in space. It involves the use of various techniques and materials to control and minimize vibrations.
In the space industry context, DC-DC (Direct Current to Direct Current) refers to electronic devices or converters that transform direct current (DC) electrical power from one voltage level to another. These converters are crucial components in spacecraft systems, where they are used to adapt the power generated by solar panels or batteries to the various voltage requirements of onboard instruments, subsystems, and payloads.

Delta refers to a type of wing shape that is triangular in planform, with the leading edge forming a straight line and the trailing edge forming a right angle. This wing shape is characterized by its high lift to-drag ratio and is often used on aircraft that are designed to fly at high speeds, such as military jets and supersonic aircraft.

In the space industry context, the term dimension often refers to measurements and specifications of physical space and objects within that space, including the size, volume, and shape of spacecraft, satellites, equipment, and components. Dimensions are crucial for designing, constructing, and operating space vehicles and structures, ensuring they fit within launch vehicles, operate as intended in the confined space environment, and meet mission requirements for payload and performance.
