Space engineering. Reference coordinate system

Status : Current, Under review   Published : July 2014



The objective of the Coordinate Systems Standard is to define the requirements related to the various coordinate systems, as well as their related mutual inter-relationships and transformations, which are used for mission definition, engineering, verification, operations and output data processing of a space system and its elements. This Standard aims at providing a practical, space-focused implementation of Coordinate Systems, developing a set of definitions and requirements. These constitute a common reference or “checklist” of maximum utility for organising and conducting the system engineering activities of a space system project or for participating as customer or supplier at any level of system decomposition. This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
