Título System safety in the commercialization of space
Información bibliográfica 1991, Vol.27, No.3, p.26-31. 16 ref.
Resumen A license to conduct a commercial space launch in the US must be secured from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Office of Commercial Space Transportation (OCST). The OCST must conduct a safety review of both the launch vehicle system and the spacecraft along with a review of the license applicant's safety programme and procedures, before a license is granted. A model commercialisation agreement has been developed for launches from test ranges controlled by the U.S. Air Force. This agreement requires that the range user must comply with the various range safety requirements established by the range organisations. The paper discusses the system and range safety activities associated with the commercialisation of space from the perspective of the system safety manager for one of the commercial launch services contractors.
