Description

This standard defines terminology and establishes uniform processes, procedures, and systematic methods for the management, control, monitoring, determination, verification, and documentation of mass properties during the design, development and operational phases of space systems, including their components and subsystems. This standard applies to space vehicles, upper stage vehicles, injection stages, satellite payloads, reentry vehicles, launch vehicles, and ballistic vehicles. This standard is intended to be used as a reference for the development of a project-specific, contractually required mass properties control plan.
