Abstract : This report provides an interim version of a Spacecraft Charging Requirements Appendix to MIL-STD-1541. Several key issues remain unresolved at this time. It is extremely difficult to refine this MIL-STD-1541 revision so that it pleases or is at least acceptable to everyone. SAI has drawn upon a large base of information in developing the MIL-STD-1541 appendix for S/C Charging and SAI has a centralized view of what is needed by the community. This view is inclusive of the interests of SPO/Aerospace, space vehicle contractors and supporting agencies. The technical issues must be resolved among this community and not be biased towards any group. Of prime importance is to ascertain the manner in which the 'worst case' specifications for the environment, charging, and discharging should be presented, and how to properly incorporate the analysis and test requirements.
