ASTM Sets Commercial Spaceflight Organizational Meeting

Standards would support the growing number of people and organizations that design, manufacture, and operate commercial space vehicles for both manned and unmanned flights; human spaceflight occupant safety will be an area of immediate focus, according to those who have expressed initial interest, ASTM reported.

ASTM International announced it will host an organizational meeting next month to potentially create a new technical committee that develops voluntary consensus standards for commercial spaceflight. Partly the result of the updated U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act of 2015, the meeting also developed because the Federal Aviation Administration's Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee is recommending the new committee be formed.

The no-fee meeting is Oct. 24 at 1 p.m. Eastern time at RTCA Inc. in, Washington, D.C. Industry stakeholders and others standardization for commercial spaceflight are welcome to attend.

The objectives of the meeting are to bring industry experts together, identify specific standards needs, determine whether ASTM International should formally launch a new activity, and, if so, develop and approve the title, scope, and structure of a new technical committee.
