This Standard deals with control systems developed as part of a space project. It is applicable to all the elements of a space system, including the space segment, the ground segment and the launch service segment.
When viewed from the perspective of a specific project context, the requirements specified in this Standard should be tailored to match the genuine requirements of a particular profile and circumstances of a project.
