BS ISO 16781. Space systems. Simulation requirements for control system

Status : Current, Draft for public comment   Published : June 2020



This International Standard establishes the requirements for simulation of space control system, including the objective, architecture, and procedure, etc. The standard is utilized in four phases of control system development, including conceptual design, detailed design, prototype, and integrated system. The objective of control system simulation is to demonstrate that the proposed or designed system will function as desired, and the simulation allows engineers and technical decision makers to evaluate the feasibility, validity and rationality of the design scheme more accurately.

The control system referred in this International Standard is the flight control system for guidance, navigation and control (GNC) of space systems which include launch vehicle, satellite, and spaceship, etc. This International Standard establishes a minimum set of requirements for simulation of flight control system, and provides guidance to engineers on what to simulate in each phase of control system development. The requirements are generic in nature because of their broad applicability to all types of simulations. Implementation details of the requirements should be addressed in project-specific standards, requirements, and handbooks, etc.

In general, standards can focus on engineering/technical requirements, processes, procedures, practices, or methods. This International Standard focuses on requirements and recommendations. Hence, this International Standard specifies what must be done; it does not prescribe how the requirements are to be met, nor does it specify who the responsible team is for complying with the requirements. Conflicts between this International Standard and other requirements documents shall be resolved by the responsible technical designer.
