EM30 MSFC TECHNICAL STANDARD PROCESS SPECIFICATION - WELDING AEROSPACE HARDWARE
|Publication Date:||22 October 2018|
This process specification establishes uniform requirements for the design, fabrication, and inspection of welds in flight hardware. This process specification may also be used for special test articles and ground support equipment. This specification combines the lessons learned from extensive Agency-wide welding engineering experiences and combines the requirements of project, Center, other government, and industry documents used for the manufacture of historic spaceflight hardware such as Saturn, the Space Shuttle, and the International Space Station.
When this process specification is specified on contract documents, the contractor may submit an alternative, corporate, detailed weld process specification that meets the intent of this specification. Industry, government, and company specifications may be used for welding hardware in lieu of this specification if approved by the responsible National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Technical Authority. The content of this process specification meets the intent of NASA-STD-5006A.
