Project requirements and compliance oversight is provided by a Product Assurance Manager supported by Product Assurance Engineers.

A bespoke PA plan is tailored to each project to ensure that specific standards are observed for all relevant processes, such as material and component selection, assembly, testing and qualification, contamination control, software design, safety analysis, transportation, handling and planetary protection.

MIL-Spec requirements can be accommodated if required.
