  • 1. GSAW2007 Tutorial I:  Software Testing for Mission‐Critical Ground Systems   Length:  Half Day  Overview:  Testing is one of the most critical development activities from a mission assurance perspective. This  tutorial will define the various levels of software testing from software unit testing through ground  system testing and will describe the characteristics of those levels of testing that are necessary for a  robust software test program. Exit criteria for each level of software testing will be described, as will  best practices from the field of software testing and requirements of the new “Software Development  Standard for Space Systems”. Software and system life cycle models will be described, and how software  testing fits into these life cycle models will be highlighted.  Instructor:  Suellen Eslinger, The Aerospace Corporation  Biography:  Suellen Eslinger is a Distinguished Engineer at The Aerospace Corporation with 40 years experience in  software engineering and the acquisition of software‐intensive systems. During her 22 years at  Aerospace, she has supported numerous Air Force and NRO space programs. She is a Principal  Investigator for software acquisition research and also leads curriculum development and delivery of  software acquisition training courses for The Aerospace Institute. Previously, she worked at Computer  Sciences Corporation (CSC) and General Research Corporation (GRC), where she developed software and  managed software development projects for DoD and NASA systems. Ms. Eslinger is widely published  and has given numerous conference presentations and tutorials in the fields of software engineering  and software acquisition. She has B.S. and M.S. degrees in mathematics, from Goucher College and  University of Arizona, respectively.  Who Should Attend:  Intended participants include (1) software engineers and systems engineers responsible for ground  systems development and (2) software acquisition personnel responsible for acquiring or supporting the  acquisition of software‐intensive ground systems. Some background in software engineering is required.
