Abstract 

ISO 14620-3:2005 sets out the minimum requirements for Flight Safety Systems, including flight termination systems (externally controlled system or on-board automatic system), tracking systems, and telemetry data transmitting systems for commercial or non commercial launch activities of orbital or sub-orbital, unmanned space vehicles. The intent is to minimize the risk of injury or damage to persons, property or the environment resulting from the launching of space vehicles.

ISO 14620-3:2005 can be applied by any country, by any international organization, whether intergovernmental or not, and by any agency or operator undertaking the launching of space vehicles.

ISO 14620-3:2005 is intended to be applied by any person, organization, entity, operator or launch authority participating in commercial or non-commercial launch activities of orbital or sub-orbital, unmanned space vehicles unless more restrictive requirements are imposed by the launch site country.
