Science Operations Configuration Control Infrastructure

Welcome to the ESA's website for the Science Operations Configuration Control Infrastructure. The purpose of SOCCI is to support the software development and maintenance processes of all SCI-O units at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Center (ESAC). 


This infrastructure is organized around the following areas:

  • Requirements Management
  • Problem and Change Management
  • System Design
  • Project Management
  • Source Code Management
  • Document Management 
  • Release Management
  • Test Management 

SOCCI eco-system is fully modular and can be customised depending on user requirements.

SOCCI reuses state-of-the art tools, configured and enhanced as needed to minimise ad-hoc development. 

SOCCI's tooling trade-off assessment has been driven by SCI-O and Industry best practices in order to define an evolutionary adoption path.
