Standards and specifications are an essential part of engineering activities. The NTSP provides NASA and on-site contractor engineers with the critical engineering and safety standards needed to perform their functions. START improves the effectiveness of managing standards-based programs and projects with an integrated standards management system.
The NTSP is sponsored by NASA’s Office of the Chief Engineer (OCE).
MISSION of the NTSP
- To promote technical excellence and further mission success by enhancing NASA’s technical capabilities through standardization.
- To facilitate participation in development of voluntary consensus standards and their adaptation for use to meet NASA’s needs.
- To manage development of NASA technical Standards, Specifications, and Handbooks to meet NASA’s unique needs.
- To provide the NASA community with access to essential Standards, Specifications, and other documents, related application notes, and lessons learned; notifications when changes to these documents occur; and access to engineering tools from a single access point.
