The purpose of this NASA Technical Standard is to set forth requirements for interconnecting cable and harness assemblies that connect electrical, electronic or electromechanical components.
This standard is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities, and Technical and Service Support Centers, and may be cited in contract, program, and other Agency documents as a technical requirement. This Standard may also apply to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, other contractors, grant recipients, or parties to agreements to the extent specified or referenced in their contracts, grants, or agreements.
This standard applies to critical work, as defined by NPD 8730.5. Critical work is any task that if performed incorrectly or in violation of prescribed requirements poses a credible risk of loss of human life; serious injury; loss of a Class A, B, or C payload (see NPR 8705.4); loss of a Category 1 or Category 2 mission (see NPR 7120.5); or loss of a mission resource valued at greater than $2M (e.g., NASA space flight hardware, Government test or launch facility).
Use of the term "supplier" applies to any entity that is manufacturing hardware in accordance with the requirements herein including NASA Centers and NASA contractors.
