NASA-STD-5006A (DRAFT-1), NASA TECHNICAL STANDARD: GENERAL FUSION WELDING REQUIREMENTS FOR AEROSPACE MATERIALS USED IN FLIGHT HARDWARE (16-JAN-2013)
NASA-STD-5006A, NASA TECHNICAL STANDARD: GENERAL WELDING REQUIREMENTS FOR AEROSPACE MATERIALS (31-JUL-2015)., The purpose of this Standard, as defined in NASA Procedural Requirement (NPR) 7120.10, Technical Standards for NASA Programs and Projects, is to establish the processing and quality assurance requirements for manual, automatic, machine, and semiautomatic welding for spaceflight applications and special test equipment used for testing flight hardware with the exception of ground-based pressure systems, which are subjected to NASA-STD-8719.17, NASA Requirements for Ground-Based Pressure Vessels and Pressurized Systems (PVS). This Standard is applicable to all welding processes used for joining metallic materials. This includes, but is not limited to arc welding (AW), solid state welding (SSW), resistance welding (RW), and high energy density welding (HEDW). This Standard covers all metallic materials used in the manufacture of hardware for spaceflight applications and special test equipment used for testing flight within NASA.
