Quality Assurance (QA) Activities and Plans for STAR JPSS Algorithm and Data Products (ADP) Program
Hall E (New Orleans Convention Center )
Shuang Qiu, PSGS, Suitland, MD; and L. Zhou, L. Rokke, and W. W. Wolf

To support the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR) Algorithm and Data Products (ADP) will provide managerial and technical expertise for the JPSS Sensor Data Record (SDR) and Environmental Data Record (EDR) algorithm tasks. Quality Assurance procedures have been put into place to ensure a faster and more efficient research-to-operation transition. The QA process is defined to coordinate the ADP algorithm teams on the Calibration/Validation activities, to support the algorithm change process, to support the algorithm discrepancy report process, to perform algorithm assessments and product validation activities. Detailed team schedules will be developed and maintained to ensure the deliveries to the JPSS Ground Segment. Monthly status reports will be reviewed and submitted by the QA team. The QA team will also organize any required technical reviews. The QA team will work in conjunction with Algorithm Integration Team (AIT) to bring consistency to algorithm development work and deliveries. The QA activities and plans for the ADP program will be described in this presentation.
