Abstract: This paper provides a detailed review of a typical specification for a cesium clock to be used in an orbiting satellite. Area of the specifications to be discussed include the use of military standards and other government documents as references, performance criteria, electrical and mechanical interface details, parte selection, quality assurance standards, and reliability requirements. The relationship between the specifications, the statement of work, and test procedures will also be discussed.
