  • Ensures that SMC launch vehicles, and ground systems were built properly to perform reliably over the system’s mission life.
  • Engage Support IPTs in developing draft charts in support of Readiness Reviews described in those guides.
  • Perform peer reviews as a member of the technical panel on control segments, and launch vehicles developed by SMC s prime contractors, sub-contractors, and vendors.
