Regulatory Development Study: Flight Safety Systems

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

UKLSL undertook a study to review approaches to Flight Safety in launch systems, focussing especially on Flight Safety Systems (FSS) and, within that, Flight Termination Systems (FTS). The project investigated approaches in other sectors where safety critical systems were required, as well as researching and critiquing Flight Safety Systems employed on current and historical launch systems, considering architectural, system, hardware and software aspects. A series of observations and recommendations were generated as an outcome of the project, to inform the process of developing the Flight Safety relevant elements of the new UK spaceflight regulations
