Space agencies and launch vehicle producers are currently very hard working on creating the necessary guidelines for the industry to correctly conduct a DFAN test. ESA, European Space agencies and technology companies such as Siemens are working on an ESA DFAN handbook for space hardware. As of today, NASA-HDBK-7010 is the only document that provide some guidelines.
There is no doubt that this innovative technology is gaining fame. The technical progress and convincing results on the one hand, and the economic and flexible benefits on the other, have attracted the attention of the space industry. In certain regions such as the US, this alternative method is already used for validation and qualification of components and systems in the military and aerospace industries. With some delay, Europe and Asia are now catching up and are also starting to request service projects and even full DFAN test systems.
