MSIS joins NASA in IV&V of New York City's Emergency Response Communications System

In January 2013, MSIS joined NASA's IV&V of the Emergency Communications Transformation Program (ECTP) for New York City's E911 system, Phase 2.

ECTP involves a massive upgrade to New York city's emergency response communications system, which is the largest 911 system in the country and handles about 11 million calls annually. The program aims to reduce 911 response time, boost public safety agency interoperability, and reduce technical redundancies in the system. Phase 2 involves major technology upgrades to networks, radios, computer aided dispatch (CAD), and Logging and Recording (L&R), including retrofit of selected subsystems in PSAC Phase 1.

MSIS engineer Mike Choppa, who designed and developed the IV&V Fault Protection database for the Mars Science Lab, brought his experience to guide the IV&V tools team in creating a database for ECTP analysts. MSIS is currently performing verification and validation of the system requirements for the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the Fire Department New York (FDNY) to ensure that the Statement Of Work is consistent with system requirements and system design in both cases.
