Advancing sound and accepted spacecraft bus standards is the objective of the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s (OSD) Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Bus Standards Initiative. This effort involves multiple government, industry, and academia participants assembled into an Integrated System Engineering Team (ISET). The core ISET industry team members include AeroAstro, Boeing, Design Net Engineering, General Dynamics Spectrum Astro, Loral, Microcosm, MicroSat, Orbital, Raytheon, and Swales. Government and Laboratory team members include the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), Air Force Space and Missile Command (AF SMC), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), MIT/Lincoln Laboratories (MIT/LL), Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC), and Space Dynamics Lab. The ISET generates standards for ORS spacecraft and uses them to build a prototype in order to evaluate and mature the standards. The ISET recently made the second major release of the bus standards documents that are available at the 21st AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites. This ISET team is also complemented by an open membership Business Team who provides business case factors for consideration in the standards definition, as well as for input for the acquisition transition plan. This paper describes the status of the ORS Bus Standards developed by the ISET to date including the implementation for the prototype build.
