Abstract : The requirements of this document were developed for the successful operations of long mission life and/or high reliability space equipment. Attention to every detail is required at every level of assembly throughout development, manufacture, qualification, and testing, starting with the parts, materials, and processes used. Launch vehicle program requirements for PMP are detailed in SMC-S- 011 Revision B - Parts, Materials and Processes Control Program for Expendable Launch Vehicles, while experimental/demonstration programs may choose to tailor this document to better align with the programs' objectives and missions. This document supersedes Aerospace Technical Operating Report TOR-2006(8583)-5236 Revision A, titled Technical Requirements for Electronics Parts, Materials, and Processes Used in Space and Launch Vehicles, and shall be used for all space program PMP procurements. The objective of this document is to specify the technical baseline in the selection, application, procurement, control and standardization of parts (electrical and mechanical), materials, and processes for space programs. This TOR is intended to be used in conjunction with TOR-2006(8583)- 5235 (Parts, Materials, and Processes Control Program for Space) in order to achieve a high reliability space vehicle. Every effort was made to utilize standard document format, but this document retains the separately called out technical sections (starting with Section 100) to focus the user industry on the unique space quality items that are paramount for mission success in each technical section. The Referenced Documents Section includes active, inactive, or canceled specifications and standards. The prime contractor shall be responsible for the continued support to industry organizations responsible for publishing and maintaining the documents, and for active participation in review and coordination of changes, that occur after contract award, to ensure continued compliance to the original intent.
