Flight Software and Ground Test Design and Analysis

Structural Ground Test performed at MSFC involves multiple Engineering disciplines, from Center Operations support for Logistics to Quality and Safety support for Day-Of Test operations. Integration of these various services from a Systems Engineering perspective is vital for accurate cost and manpower estimates. Also essential to any successful test is careful attention to requirements and capabilities (material & personnel).
