The Wallops Systems Software Engineering Branch is the Software Engineering Division's engineering service provider at Wallops Flight Facility. We work with flight projects, principal investigators, other AETD Divisions, and other organizations to develop flight and ground data systems for sub-orbital and special orbital Earth and space science missions. We develop integrated systems applying state-of-the-art technologies, commercial-off-the-shelf products, and custom developed products to provide cost-effective solutions to meet the customers' needs. We provide system engineering, system planning, conceptualization, requirements analysis, design, implementation, test, verification, and sustaining engineering. Our products support the planning, execution, and analysis of missions and include mission visualizations and simulations, carrier, payload, and ground system monitoring and control, and data display and analysis.
