Technical Memoranda (TM’s)

A TM (Technical Memoranda) document is one of the series of ECSS Technical documents. The Technical Memorandum status indicates that it is a non-normative document providing useful information to the space systems developers’ community on a specific subject. It is made available to record and present non-normative data, which are not relevant for a Standard or a Handbook. Note that these data are non-normative even if expressed in the language normally used for requirements. Therefore, a Technical Memorandum is not considered by ECSS as suitable for direct use in Invitation To Tender (ITT) or business agreements for space systems development.
