Abstract
The NGST/Raytheon Contractor Team selected to build and operate the system has responsibility for both hardware and algorithms . This paper describes the process being used by the NGST/Raytheon team to convert science-grade algorithm code to operational code. Also discussed are the challenges, rewards, and pitfalls associated with the process of converting an evolving science-grade algorithm code to pre-launch operational code. A major challenge is dealing with two simultaneous feedback loops; one between the NGST and the sensor vendor; another between NGST and its Raytheon partner to convert an evolving and immature science product to an operational product.
