This standard provides guidelines for environmental verification programs for Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) payloads, subsystems and components and describes methods for implementing the environmental verifications described. It contains a baseline for demonstrating, by test and/or analysis, the satisfactory performance of hardware in the expected mission environments, and that minimum workmanship standards have been met. It elaborates on those guidelines, gives guideline test levels, provides guidance in the choice of test options, and describes acceptable test and analytical methods for implementing the requirements. It is expected that projects will use this handbook in the development of their environmental requirements. Any guidelines that are intended as “institutional” requirements will be captured in GSFC-Std-1000 Rules for the Design, Development, and Operation of Flight Systems (also known as the GOLD Rules).
