ECSS-E-ST-35-02C – Solid propulsion for spacecrafts and launchers (8 October 2010)


General requirements applying to all type of Propulsion Systems Engineering are defined in ECSS-E-ST-35. For solid propulsion activities within a space project the standards ECSS-E-ST-35 and ECSS-E-ST-35-02 are applied together.

This Standard defines the regulatory aspects that apply to the elements and processes of solid propulsion for launch vehicles and spacecraft. It specifies the activities to be performed in the engineering of these propulsion systems and their applicability. It defines the requirements for the engineering aspects such as functional, physical, environmental, quality factors, operational, and verification.


  • NOTE 1: Some solid propulsion systems use hot gas valves, for thrust or pressure modulation. The requirements applicable to these systems are not covered by the present document.
  • NOTE 2: For SRM with TVC, only moveable nozzle with flexseal are addressed.


This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristic and constrains of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
