Space Standards Development
  • SIF works primarily within the standards development organizations with space committees. These are the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Subcommittee 13 for Space Data and Information Transfer (TC20/SC13), ISO Subcommittee 14 for Space Systems and Operations (TC20/SC14) and the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)
    • SIF is a leader in the development of a strategy for space standards development within SC14. Working with the Heads of Delegation from all P-member countries, we are defining which future standards need to be developed for a growing space industry.
    • By connecting sponsor organizations with standards efforts we enable resource allocation to those standards with the highest market benefit. For example, SIF funds the US Head of Delegation travel to international meetings to represent US interests with funds from US sponsors.
  • Within ISO we have taken a leadership role in the development of Space Systems standards, which include:
    • 10784-1 Early operations -- Part 1: Initializing and commissioning
    • 10784-2 Early operations -- Part 2: Initialization plan
    • 10784-3 Early operations -- Part 3: Commissioning report
    • 10788 Lunar Dust Simulant
    • 21348 Solar Irradiance Determination
    • 14222 Earth Atmosphere Density above 120 km
    • 16457 Earth Ionosphere and Plasmasphere
    • 11225 Guide to Atmospheric Density Models
  • Within the AIAA we have taken a leadership role in the development of Space Plug and Play Avionics
    • An SPA Guidebook Space Plug and Play Avionics
    • An Extended Technical Electronic Data Sheet (xTEDS)
    • Space Plug and Play Avionics
    • Adaptations of USB for Space (SPA-U)
    • Other SPA standards
