Human Rating of Commercially Operated Spacecraft

The objectives of this project are to: (1) extend and/or modify the requirements defined in NPR 8705.2B as determined applicable for commercial spaceflight; (2) apply the definition of compliance and verification processes for commercial spacecraft developers and operators; (3) define the human physiological parameters within which a commercial spacecraft must function; and (4) determine acceptance criteria to achieve a human rating designation. The resulting deliverable will be a set of baseline Human Rating Guidelines and Recommended Requirements for Commercial Space Transportation, including validation and verification processes.
