Paper Abstract

The rapid increase in number and complexity of space tests in the future requires unique hazard analyses, test monitoring, and positive safety control. The Detachment 2 (Det 2) of the Space and Missiles System Control (SMC), formerly known as Consolidated Space Test Center (CSTC), at Onizuka AFB in Sunnyvale California provides an integrated space safety analysis and independent assessment capability required for certification of space safety test readiness and real-time control of hazardous space tests. The objective of this organization is to eliminate unnecessary risk to manned missions in space, national space assets, ground population and property, the space environment, and test articles.
