ANSI/AIAA G-095A-2017

Guide to Safety of Hydrogen and Hydrogen Systems

This Guide presents information that designers, builders, and users of hydrogen systems can use to ensure safe hydrogen systems or resolve hydrogen hazards. Guidance is provided on general safety systems and controls, usage, personnel training, hazard management, design, facilities, detection, storage, transportation, and emergency procedures. Pertinent research is summarized, and supporting data are presented relative to the topic. Additional information regarding codes, standards, and regulations, as well as a sample safety data sheet, extensive bibliography, and other useful material can be found in the annexes.


ANSI/AIAA G-043B-2018

Guide to the Preparation of Operational Concept Documents

A recognized systems engineering best practice is early development of operational concepts during system development and documentation of those operational concepts in one or more operational concept documents. Recognizing this best practice, U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) and NASA standard procedures have required that information relating to system operational concepts be prepared in support of the specification and development of systems. In the past, the DoD has published Data Item Descriptions (DIDs), and NASA has published Data Requirements Documents (DRDs), which describe the format and content of the information to be provided. This AIAA Guide describes which types of information are most relevant, their purpose, and who should participate in the operational concept development effort. It also provides advice regarding effective procedures for generation of the information and how to document it.

AIAA S-114A-2020

Moving Mechanical Assemblies for Space and Launch Vehicles

This standard specifies general requirements for the design, manufacture, quality control, testing, and storage of moving mechanical assemblies (MMAs) to be used on space and launch vehicles. This standard is applicable to the mechanical or electromechanical devices that control the movement of a mechanical part of a space or launch vehicle relative to another part. The requirements apply to the overall MMA as well as to the mechanical components and instrumentation that are an integral part of these mechanical assemblies. The most significant updates in this revision, relative to the previous (2005) version, include a reformatted and rewritten testing section, a new approach to calculating force/torque margin, and the elimination of the “shall, where practical” weighting level of requirements.


ANSI/AIAA S-102.2.4-2015

Capability-Based Product Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) Requirements

This Standard provides the basis for developing the analysis of failure modes, their effects, and criticality in the context of individual products along with the known performance of their elements. The requirements for contractors, the planning and reporting needs, along with the analytical methodology are established. The linkage of this Standard to the other standards in the new family of capability-based safety, reliability, and quality assurance standards is described, and keywords for use in automating the Product FMECA process are provided.


AIAA S-102.2.5-2009

Standard: Performance-Based Sneak Circuit Analysis (SCA) Requirements

This standard provides the basis for developing the analysis of sneak conditions. The sneak conditions may consist of hardware, software, operator actions, or combinations of these elements. The requirements for contractors, planning and reporting needs, and analytical tools are established. The linkage of this standard to the other standards in the new family of performance-based reliability and maintainability standards is described, and all of the keywords for use in automating the SCA process are provided.


AIAA S-111A-2014

Qualification and Quality Requirements for Space Solar Cells

This standard establishes qualification, characterization, and quality requirements for all solar cells intended for operations in space. It defines terminology and establishes standard tests, environmental conditions, procedures, and systematic methods for verifying the capability of a photovoltaic solar cell device to operate in the environment of space. This standard is intended to be used to establish the minimum level of testing required to demonstrate that a solar cell type will operate in a predictable and understood manner. Success and failure criteria are defined for each qualification test. For the characterization tests, sufficient data is collected to predict electrical performance and behavior as a function of pertinent operational and environmental parameters


AIAA S-112A-2013

Qualification and Quality Requirements for Electrical Components on Space Solar Panels

This document establishes qualification and quality requirements for the electrical components integrated onto spacecraft solar panels that carry single crystal silicon solar cells or gallium arsenide solar cells having any number of junctions including those with metamorphic and inverted metamorphic structure. In this standard the term panel defines the assembly of electrical components to be tested. The standard also defines requirements for solar panel manufacturers’ quality systems and for qualification and characterization of the electrical components on solar panels. This standard fully addresses the qualification of all panel components and the panel substrate only as they affect electrical performance. Requirements for acceptance testing are not defined in this document. In accordance with the conditions stated in this section, this standard accepts qualification and characterization by similarity when approved in writing by the customer.


AIAA S-112A-2013/A1-2019

Qualification and Quality Requirements for Space Solar Panels (Amendment 1)

This amendment to AIAA S-112A-2013 is intended to change requirements to the effect of reducing the current in solar cell circuits tested in darkness.
