FORCAST Line Operation #1 Pasquale TemiNASA-Ames


Observatory level line ops
“Observatory Level” Line-ops

FORCAST Line-ops #1 is the first activity that involve an integrated test and a characterization plan at the Observatory Level

It is indeed our first chance to test on ground the Observatory as an integrated system

FORCAST Line-ops #1 will contain Observatory elements that have not been formally verified. This Line ops represents an opportunity to perform planned tests that would establish the readiness of the various Observatory elements to proceed. For MCCS, it will represent the first time that significant new functionality has been integrated with aircraft and Telescope Assembly (TA) hardware and software. For the Science Instrument, it will also represent the first time that FORCAST software is integrated with MCCS software while controlling the SI hardware mounted on the TA


Observatory level line ops objectives
“Observatory Level” Line-ops Objectives

Determine to what extent the combined TA-MCCS-FORCAST integrated Observatory is ready for conducting the Short Science flight series #1 .

Enable the Science Instrument development team and Mission Operation team to assess the current capabilities of the Observatory for executing the science operations, in preparation for Short Science flight Series #1

System evaluation will be performed to ensure that system functions in the expected manner when placed in the intended environment.

Assumptions and Approach

  • Line Op Definition:

    • FORCAST Line Op #1 is an Observatory-level evaluation for SS1 and a risk-reduction activity

      • FORCAST Line Op #1 is not formal V&V “for credit”

      • Subsystems are not in formal SS1 configuration

  • Observatory Configuration and Line Op Entrance Criteria:

    • MCCS (incl. EB4), TA, FORCAST are “SS1-like”

    • Detailed entrance criteria and configuration prerequisites are given in the Plan and in forthcoming Test Procedures

    • Assume subsystem verifications, respective ICD verifications, and PCA results are already available before onset of Line Op

  • Requirements

    • Tests are against Observatory-level requirements of ES Level B and of SE01-013 (down-selected for ES)

Assumptions and Approach

  • Acceptance and Approvals:

    • Plans, Procedures, and Test Results will be placed under CM and all accepted by SOFIA Program Chief Engineer

    • Detailed test procedures, available before TRR

    • Any PRs will be submitted to Program Chief Engineer; Corrective Action/Deviation/Waiver will be in accordance with Program process

  • Coordination:

    • Pasquale Temi is lead and POC

    • On-aircraft tests will be coordinated between Science, Platform Engineering, and Aircraft Ops, in accordance with June 23, 2009 memo, “Coordinating Test Activities Onboard the SOFIA Aircraft”

    • Ongoing weekly planning meetings with TA, MCCS, FORCAST and Ops representatives

    • Final coordination is through Program Integration IPT

Prerequisites - TA & SI

  • Tests with no dependencies on night operations

  • Some tests are not MCCS per se; however, they deal with transfer and ingestion of MCCS of data into the DCS
