Facility Systems, Ground Support Systems, And Ground Support Equipment General Design Requirements

Document ID 
Document Date 

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.
