- The objective of this paper is to provide future ISS scientists and/or engineers with an overview of the coordination process for the preparation and implementation of the pre-launch checkout and transition activities as observed from the Marshall Control Flight Center (MSFC) Payload Operations Integration Center perspective. This includes 4 major phases: (1) Verification and validation of the new command and telemetry databases that are needed for new payload experiments and new onboard formats; (2) Integration testing of the new ground control software and hardware; (3) Final internal and external pre-launch checkouts with cadre and experiment teams; (4) Performance of the actual synchronized transition between MSFC, Johnson Space Center (JSC), and ISS onboard configuration to new onboard software, ground software, and databases.
