Document ID 
KSC-DE-512-SM
Document Date 
02/12/2012

This standard establishes requirements and guidance for design and fabrication of ground systems (GS) that includes: ground support equipment (GSE), ground support systems (GSS), and facility ground support systems (F-GSS), to provide uniform methods and processes for design and development of robust, safe, reliable, maintainable, supportable and cost-effective GS in support of space flight and institutional programs and projects. This standard is intended to supplement the minimum requirements of NASA-STD-5005 by applying more stringent, restrictive, or demanding requirements applicable to the specific KSC environment. This standard also provides requirements for GSS and F-GSS because these systems are not covered in NASA-STD-5005.
