Document Scope: 

The purpose of this NASA Technical Standard is to provide an Agency-wide basis from which test programs and procedures are developed for NASA vehicles, subsystems and their components, and payloads. This NASA Technical Standard defines a standard set of flight hardware leak test requirements that provide the necessary verification of pressure integrity for NASA vehicles, subsystems and their components, and payloads (both pressurized and sealed). Compliance of qualification and acceptance test programs and procedures with this NASA Technical Standard will provide consistency across the Agency and its contractors, facilitating the sharing of hardware between Centers and programs.
