flight system

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Any spacecraft-operating system. It might contain several dozen subsystems. A single flight system may have subsystems on board the spacecraft as well as on Earth, for example a telecommunications system with transmitter and receiver subsystems in orbit and at ground stations. The two terms ‘flight system’ and ‘flight subsystem’ are used inconsistently, however, since some flight subsystems also contain systems.
