Throughout document: Corrected 18 typographical errors (Administrative Change)
Added Attachment 5 to Volume 1 on Payload Safety Introduction Briefing (PSIB) and related information that is to be presented at the PSIB. Added NASA electric forms NF 1825, NASA ELV Payload Safety Hazard Report Form; NF 1826, NASA ELV Payload Safety Post-Tailoring Equivalent Level of Safety Request; and NF 1827, NASA ELV Payload Safety Waiver Request. Added requirements addressing pyrovalves (Vol. 3, Section22.214.171.124) and payload recovery missions involving sample or payload returns. Added some additional requirements for Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessels (COPVs) and a COPV Mechanical Damage Control Plan (Vol. 3, Section 12.2.5). Revised definition for “catastrophic.” Numerous improvements to requirements to improved clarity and correctness.
This Annex to NASA-STD 8719.24 is published by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as the template and starting point for developing project range safety requirements. This Annex provides technical safety requirements for unmanned orbital and unmanned deep space payloads that fly onboard Expendable Launch Vehicles (ELVs). The requirements contained in this Annex to NASA-STD 8719.24 were developed jointly by NASA and U.S. Air Force Range Safety representatives (30th and 45th Space Wings) using Air Force Space Command Manual (AFSPCMAN) 91-710, Range Safety User Requirements, and NASA safety standards. The requirements of this document comply with the requirements of AFSPCMAN 91-710 and are acceptable to NASA and the Air Force ranges. As such, they provide a streamlined starting point for the safety requirements tailoring process. These requirements are provided in a matrix format that was developed to facilitate project-specific tailoring of the safety requirements for each NASA ELV payload project.
