Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Control For Propellant And Explosive Devices

The purpose of this document is to establishrequirements for the development of appropriate controlmeasures to provide protection against personnel injury,property damage, and/or mission degradation due to thedischarge of electrostatic energy (ESE) and subsequentinitiation of propellant or explosive devices (ordnance). This document establishesmandatory electrostatic discharge (ESD) control requirementsfor NASA/MSFC and NASA/MSFC contractor facilities whereordnance and/or propellant may be received, distributed,assembled, disassembled, handled, tested, repaired., or stored.These requirements shall be contractually imposed and implemented during all phases of receiving, inspection,manufacturing, testing, repair, handling, storage, and shippingof all items of potential concern. In the case of conflictwith documents in Appendix A, this document shall takeprecedence unless otherwise specified by the contract.
