This standard establishes criteria for design, manufacture, and performance certification of explosive systems and explosive devices commonly used on launch, upper stage, and space vehicle systems. The requirements contained in this specification are intended to serve as a universal set of tools for use by explosive system manufacturers and users during all phases of development and certification. This information may also be used for guidance during preparation of acquisition contracts and program-specific documents, and may be used for explosive system applications unrelated to space vehicles.
