GOES-R AWG Integration Team: Interface with the AWG Application Teams
Exhibit Hall C (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
Lihang Zhou, QSS Group Inc., Lanham, MD; and W. W. Wolf and M. Goldberg
NOAA/NESDIS/STAR is taking the lead in the activities to develop, demonstrate and recommend end-to-end capabilities for the GOES-R Level 2 product systems. Fifteen GOES-R Algorithm Working Group (AWG) teams have been formed to select specialty area algorithms and develop the corresponding product generation systems. To ensure faster, cheaper and smarter transitions from research into operations, the AWG teams will develop systems in a collaborative environment (CE) that will bring consistency across the product systems; compilers, operating systems, coding standards, standardized documentation, test data sets, and defined benchmarks. The AWG Integration Team will work with the Application Teams to implement the standards within each product system, will set up and maintain a configuration management system for change management (CM), and will develop an integrated system that will be packaged with all the supporting documentation and delivered to the customer. In this presentation we will describe the strategy and procedures to interface with all the AWG teams where we will stress the quality assurance (QA) activities that are planned for the GOES-R AWG product generation systems.
