Abstract:

In July 2007, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA Office of the Chief Engineer OCE chartered the NASA Instrument Capability Study NICS team to determine whether NASA instrument developers are facing challenges that impact the capability to design and build quality instruments or whether there are flaws in the acquisition strategy evidenced by schedule delays, cost overruns, and increased technical risk via design deficiencies. The Study team was also chartered to determine if occurrences seen recently are coincident, but isolated cases or if there were generic issues causing such degradation. If the issues were found to be generic, the team was to offer solutions to recover such capability.
