Abstract : This standard establishes the environmental testing requirements for launch vehicles, upper-stage vehicles, space vehicles, and their subsystems and units. In addition, a uniform set of definitions of related terms is established. This standard is applicable to the procurement of space system hardware as a compliance document for the establishment of baseline test requirements. The test requirements herein focus on design verification and the identification of latent defects to help ensure a high level of confidence in achieving successful space missions.
