Space engineering - Mechanical - Part 6: Pyrotechnics

EN 14607 Part 6 of Space engineering - Mechanical defines the requirements for the discipline of pyrotechnics engineering.
This part defines the standards to be applied for the use of pyrotechnics on all spacecraft and other space products including launch vehicles. It addresses the aspects of design, analysis, verification, manufacturing, operations and safety.
As any pyrotechnic item used for flight can function only once, it can never be fully tested before its crucial mission operation. The required confidence can only be established indirectly by the testing of identical items. Test results and theoretical justification are essential for demonstration of fulfilment of the requirements. The requirement for repeatability shows that product assurance plays a crucial role in support of technical aspects.
The failure or unintentional operation of a pyrotechnic item can be catastrophic for the whole mission and life threatening. Specific requirements can exist for the items associated with it. As all pyrotechnic functions are to be treated similarly, collective control needs to be applied in the manner of a subsystem.
When viewed from the perspective of a specific project context, the requirements defined in this document should be tailored to match the genuine requirements of a particular profile and circumstances of a project.
NOTE   Tailoring is a process by which individual requirements of specifications, standards and related documents are evaluated, and made applicable to a specific project by selection, and in some exceptional cases, modification of existing or addition of new requirements.
