Block diagrams are usually created define a system by visually describing, using blocks and arrows, how each individual part or sub-system interacts with the system as a whole. Block diagrams are efficient at providing a concise overview or "big picture" of a complicated system.
Usually these diagrams are created by the engineering team that has developed the details of the system or are experienced in similar engineered systems as well. As far as how each interface is achieved block diagrams rarely provide that information nor is it always obvious what the actually system design uses.
To answer your question the words "Subsystem" implies many parts of an assembly-system (subsystem) that achieves the function "Inert Gas Pressurant" - which is unknown. Probably valves, piping, electronics and an interface with safety mechanisms.
It is not uncommon for block diagrams to be accompanied by descriptions of each of the functions.
