PURPOSE AND SCOPE

This style guide establishes the standard format for certain official technical documentation prepared for or by the Spaceport Engineering and Technology (SE&T) Directorate for release at Kennedy Space Center (KSC). This document primarily defines the requirements for preparing general technical publications required by SE&T that are not covered by other specific guidelines, such as GP-435.

This document is further intended to guide authors in determining content elements of technical publications. Not all documents will require all elements addressed here. This guide recommends content elements, writing styles, and formatting conventions and refers often to a family of supporting templates (see Section 3) that can help the author produce the intended results. While this guide is concerned primarily with the elements a document should include and how those elements should be arranged, it assumes a certain level of familiarity with word processing functions and does not offer step-by-step instructions.

The recommendations in this guideline are suitable for formatting various document types: specifications, standards, technical manuals and reports, general publications, studies, implementation plans, requirements, and test reports. Documents with specific content requirements (boiler-plates) are addressed in separate sections.

This document applies to technical documentation accomplished by KSC contractor personnel (e.g., Space Flight Operations Contract (SFOC), Joint Base Operations Support Contract (JBOSC), Checkout and Payload Processing Services (CAPPS), and University-Affiliated Spaceport Technology and Development Contract (USTDC)) to the extent specified in their contracts.
