Mission Assurance

Mission Assurance activities at MSSL are tailored to follow the ESA ECSS Management and Quality Standards (European Cooperation on Space Standardization).

European Cooperation on Space Standardization

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

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, qualification, contamination control, software design, safety analysis, transportation and handling and planetary protection.

Should it be required MIL-Spec requirements can be accommodated.
