This document delineates the quality system requirements over and above the aerospace industry quality standard, SAE AS 9100, deemed necessary for satellite and launch vehicle systems. As such, it is includes all the basic requirements of AS 9100. A matrix showing which paragraphs of this TOR correspond to the requirements of AS 9100 is included as Attachment 1.
