May 29, 2009

Minneapolis, MN - The SMTA Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony at SMTA International, October 7, 2009, will feature Mission Assurance Manager at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Peter Barry, as the keynote speaker. Peter will present an overview of the role that mission assurance management plays in JPL projects. JPL Mission Assurance Managers lead a team of assurance specialists (EEE Parts Engineering, Environments Engineering, Hardware and Software Quality Assurance Engineers, Reliability Engineering, and System Safety Engineering) to independently assess project risk for JPL and NASA. Examples of mission assurance support for current and future space flight missions will be woven into the presentation.

Mr. Barry is a Mission Assurance Manager (MAM) at JPL on the Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment that is launching June 2009 on board the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO); he is also the MAM for Space Technology 7 (ST-7), and the International Space Station-to -CEV Communications Adaptor (ICCA). Peter holds a BS in Industrial Technology from California State University at Los Angeles. He has worked at JPL for 22 years, and his past assignments have been with the EEE Parts Engineering Group, the Hardware Quality Assurance Office, and the JPL Office of the Management System.
