The Independent Readiness Review Team provides independent assessments of program risks and risk mitigation options to the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) leadership for designated SMC launch vehicles, space vehicles, and ground control systems. The IRRT assesses technical risk and after Flight Readiness Review (FRR), the IRRT will provide the same mission success risk assessments to the Mission Director until one day prior to launch and provides input to space vehicle ship decisions and consent to fuel.

Support the software panel by providing technical assistance in the area of space vehicles, control segment, and launch vehicle software. This includes technical evaluation and risk assessments of software development planning, requirements definition, design, and testing. Software reviews also include investigations to determine conformance to: lifecycle processes specified in the contract and the software documentation (internal and deliverable), iterative build verification and release, bi-directional traceability (from Operational Requirements Document [Capability Development Document/Capability Production Document] level thru system specification to the software unit level), and verification methods and levels as appropriate.

Evaluate risk in the area of test and evaluation, to include system test procedures, test results, system and subsystem environmental tests, configuration management, ground support equipment (GSE), system checkout procedures, launch operations, orbital operations, software, system interfaces, post flight analysis, test range instrumentation support and planning, ground and flight safety, and security. Technical evaluations and risk assessments in the area of product assurance include quality assurance/manufacturing, reliability, parts/materials/ processes control, contamination/corrosion control, and a comparison of the adequacy of the product for performance and build quality against design disclosure and fleet norms.

Provide Advisory and Assistance Services (A&AS), including subject matter expertise (SME), in support of IRRT mission areas as directed in SMC-G-1201, SMC-G-1202, SMC-G-1203, and SMC-G-1204. 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 space vehicles, control segments, and launch vehicles developed by SMC s prime contractors, sub-contractors, and vendors.

Focus peer review on each phase of the software development life cycle.
