Science Software Integration and Test (SSI&T) is the process by which new science algorithms, new versions of existing science algorithms, and user methods, are tested for production readiness and integrated into the Science Data Processing Subsystem (SDPS) environment. The goals of SSI&T are to ensure reliability and safety. Reliability means that the software will run to normal completion repeatedly over the normal range of data inputs and runtime conditions. Safety means that the software will execute without interfering with other software or operations.
Each Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) and Instrument Team (IT) combination have
formulated specific agreements, understandings, or procedures that
guide their respective SSI&T activities. "Science Software
I&T Procedures (aka, The Green Book)" provides detailed
instructions on how to use the tools that are provided in the ECS
to accomplish the steps outlined in the DAAC/IT procedures.
Additional information pertaining to SSI&T can be found in the Library section of this website, where links to abstracts of contract documentation, including the Green Book, are provided.
