NASA Technical Standards Program

NASA Technical Standards Program The NASA Technical Standards Program (NTSP) is sponsored by the Office of the Chief Engineer. Its primary mission is the enhancement of NASA's engineering capabilities by providing technical standards required to meet the needs of the Agency.

This is accomplished by:
  • supporting the development of non-Government standards.
  • developing NASA technical standards where needed [i.e. as required in areas where established voluntary consensus standards (VCS) available from other sources fail to meet NASA's technical needs].
  • providing NASA-wide access to standards developed by national and international organizations.
  • providing single-point access to technical information, tools, and best practices needed to achieve technical excellence and further mission success.
