European Space Agency (ESA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) EEE Part Qualification Programs


The European Space Agency (ESA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have extensive qualification programs for manufacturers and individual EEE parts along with qualified parts lists. Similar to the Qualified Manufacturers Lists (QML) and Qualified Products Lists (QPL) programs of the US military specification system for EEE parts, these space agencies also differentiate parts into reliability categories such as “high reliability” and “space grade”, with individual screening and qualification testing requirements for each.

These internationally recognized EEE space part qualification programs include periodic audits of manufacturers, and review of manufacturing process documents and test data.


Projects/programs should review these screening and qualification test program standards prior to approving parts based on ESA or JAXA qualification.
