Description / Abstract:

This requirements document is applicable to all types of single or multi contact electrical connectors including: circular, rectangular printed circuit, rectangular microminiature, rectangular D-subminiature, rectangular nanominiature, rectangular rack and panel, coaxial, and hermetic. This document will be used to determine the minimum requirements for space applications. This document is not a mandatory requirements document but is for the purpose of providing guidance. For purposes of standardization and reference, several space environments are defined and include: habitable pressurized modules, low earth orbit, geosynchronous earth orbit, trans-atmospheric vehicle, lunar surface, Martian surface. The environmental categories are designed to be used as a default when considering how to alter any test for a specific application. The environmental categories are meant for reference purposes.

There are several tables and charts designed for cross-referencing which types of connectors need to be tested for which space environments and for cross-referencing what types of test are necessary for what type of connector when being used in any space environment.
