Document Scope: 

The purpose of this NASA Technical Standard is to provide an Agency-wide basis from which test programs are developed for NASA payloads. The document defines a standard set of flight hardware test requirements which provide the necessary verification of design adequacy and flight worthiness of NASA spacecraft. Compliance provides consistency across the Agency and its contractors, facilitating the sharing of hardware between Centers and programs. Compliance also provides a basis for establishing a baseline pedigree for the "qualification by similarity" evaluation process for "heritage" hardware without the need to consider the variability of test requirements.
