A special technical review team, the Sentinel Special Review Team (SSRT), was formed by B612/Sentinel Mission leadership to provide independent, unbiased technical advice and evaluation and assistance during the development and operations of the Sentinel Space Telescope mission. Members include scientists and aerospace experts, as well as experts assigned by NASA, which is providing technical support through a Space Act Agreement. Tom Gavin serves as SSRT Chair.
In addition, NASA has agreed, through a Space Act Agreement, to provide technical consulting to the Sentinel Mission during the requirements definition, design, and development phases, during design reviews, and for issue-specific purposes through the NASA Technical Consulting Team (NTCT). Members of the NTCT participate in Sentinel program reviews with the SSRT. Profiles can be found at: http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/NTCT/members.pdf
