ISO 17401:2004 Preview
Space systems -- Spacecraft interface requirements document for launch vehicle services
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed* in 2013.
*Therefore this version remains current
ISO 17401:2004 provides spacecraft (SC) organizations with the general format for presenting the interface requirement document (IRD) for launch vehicle services. The IRD provides a list of the major technical requirements spacecraft agencies provide to launch vehicle (LV) agencies when submitting an application for launch services.
ISO 17401:2004 is applicable to all existing commercial LV and related launch facilities so as to permit SC contractors to prepare a single interface requirement document for a given SC mission, independently of the LV contractor to be selected.
