Science Operations Configuration Control Infrastructure

Welcome to the ESA's website for the Science Operations Configuration Control Infrastructure - SOCCI. 

SOCCI supports system engineering activities and processes across teams at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Center (ESAC). SOCCI is a service provided by the Science and Operations IT Unit (SITU).

SOCCI supports the following types of activities:

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

SOCCI eco-system is fully modular and can be adapted to project requirements.

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

SOCCI's tooling selection and customisations have been driven by ESA and Industry standards.
