GOES-R IV&V

GOES-R is a collaborative development and acquisition effort between National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). KeyLogic analyzes NASA’s software throughout the development process to ensure that each system does what it is intended to do, doesn’t do anything that it isn’t intended to do, and performs safely in degraded conditions.

Helping NASA/NOAA GOES-R Reduce Mission Risk through V&V

The Client: GOES-R is a collaborative development and acquisition effort between National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The Challenge: GOES-R is a key element of the NOAA operations. As such, the GOES-R series of satellites will result in more timely and accurate weather forecasts, and improve support for the detection and observations of meteorological phenomena that directly affect public safety, protection of property, and ultimately, economic health and development. NASA is a prime example of an agency with no room for software design error. NASA requires early detection and identification of risk elements.

The Solution: Verification and Validation (V&V) is an effective technique for increasing the probability of software being delivered that meets requirements and is safe, within cost, and within schedule.

The Result: KeyLogic analyzes NASA’s software throughout the development process to ensure that each system does what it is intended to do, doesn’t do anything that it isn’t intended to do, and performs safely in degraded conditions. Results include:

  • Improved Safety. When a national asset is at stake, safety is of utmost concern for NASA and NOAA. V&V improves safety by (1) verifying that the system is being built right, and (2) validating that the right system is being built.
  • Objectivity. As a third party providing V&V of a software system, KeyLogic is separate from the organization building the system—providing increased objectivity.
  • Cost and Time Savings. The costs of dealing with a defect discovered during design analysis are much lower than the costs of dealing with a defect found during final testing. Peforming IV&V throughout the life cycle saves NASA time and money by identifying issues early in the process.
  • Cooperative Solutions. We are passionate about reducing risk for NASA and NOAA and partnering with them over the long term. KeyLogic has been providing V&V for NASA for more than six years. We understand the overall mission and work closely with NASA and NOAA to arrive at cooperative solutions.
