Abstract : Assists range users in the determination of flight termination system design and test requirements. Specifies minimum design, analysis, test, inspection, and data requirements for airbourne and ground support equipment. Range users are cautioned to make provision for the mandatory system testing and monitoring functions as specified herein. Users are strongly urged to coordinate with the Range Safety personnel as early as is practical to ensure proper recognition and interpretation of these requirements.The scope of this document specifies minimum design, analysis, test, inspection, and data requirements for airborne and ground support equipment (GSE). These requirements have been shown to ensure a minimally acceptable level of safety and reliability during installation, test, and flight of the airborne FTS. Facilities and ranges at NASA, DOE, and FAA are considered to be MRTFB(Major Range and Test Facility Base) activities for purposes of this document. There is no RCC commonality document for ground operations safety, which shall be determined uniquely by each range. The FTS design requirements established in this document do not negate, supersede, or include other range requirements, such as ground or system safety.
