The ECSS-HB-32-22A recommends engineering inserts and practices for European programs and projects. It may be cited in contracts and program documents as a reference for guidance to meet specific program/project needs. The target users of this handbook are engineers involved in the design, analysis and verification of launchers and spacecraft in relation to insert usage.
The current know-how is documented in this handbook in order to make expertise to all European developers of space systems.
It is a guidelines document, therefore it includes advisory information rather than requirements.
This handbook supports following ECSS Standard: ECSS-E-ST-32C Rev.1 (15 November 2008).
