NASA Metric Transition Plan requires the use of metric units in technical publications. Although results are published in metric units, theyoften are obtained with laboratory or flight instrumentsdesigned with inch-poundunits. NASA hasrequired considerationof the metric systemin the developmentof major programssince In response to Public Law and Executive OrderNASA revised its metric use policy and developed this Metric Transition Plan.

NASA's goal is to use the metric system for program development and functional support activities to the greatest practical extent by. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Transition Management Plan provides the strategic foundation for the management and execution of transition efforts.

This plan contains the Agency-level goals, objectives, roles, and responsibilities necessary to execute NASA Transition efforts.

METRIC TRANSITION PLAN (IMPLEMENTATION PROCEDURES) 1. REASON FOR ISSUE a. This handbook sets forth procedures for ongoing implementation of the policies contained in VA DirectiveMetric Transition Plan (Implementation and Guidance) within the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The handbook must be used with the directive. In the near term, NASA Transition is focused primarily upon the NASA metric transition plan book activities associated with the completion of SSP and the beginning of Exploration activities. Therefore, this iteration of the NASA Transition Management Plan delineates the overarching strategies for Phase I and establishes a structure for decision making heading.

A changeover to the predominant use of the International System of Units is expected to be espcially beneficial to LLL because it will allow all the many scientific and engineering disciplines to talk to one another in the same measurement language.

The NASA Software Documentation Standard (hereinafter refened to as Standard) can be applied to the documentation of all NASA software. This Standard is limited to documentation format and content requirements. It does not mandate specific management, engineering, or assurance standards or techniques.

NASA began trying to transition towards metric in the s and 90s, with various fits and starts. Shuttle used predominantly English units; SLS/Orion will be NASA's first human spaceflight program designed in metric.

Outside of space, there's generally a mix of units, depending on the pedigree of the program. Metric. Reference Materials. Provide a complete list of all documents and other sources referenced in the PMP including all referenced policies and procedures.

Approval Signatures. This section is used to document the approval of the Project Management Plan during the Formal Review. The review should be ideally conducted face to. The purpose of NASA’s Information Resources Management (IRM) Strategic Plan is to guide the direction, focus, mission alignment, principles, investments, initiatives and accountability of the NASA Information Technology organization and to maximize the value of IT to NASA programs, partners, stakeholders and the American public.

Yard definition. Converting units of the inch-pound system of measurement is very time consuming. Indeed, vir- tually no one knows that 1 mile equals 5, feet, or 1, yards, or 63, inches. In the metric system, everybody knows that a mile equals 10 kilometers, or 10, meters, or 1, Size: 3MB.

The Mars Climate Orbiter (formerly the Mars Surveyor '98 Orbiter) was a kilogram (1, lb) robotic space probe launched by NASA on Decem to study the Martian climate, Martian atmosphere, and surface changes and to act as the communications relay in the Mars Surveyor '98 program for Mars Polar r, on SeptemMission type: Mars orbiter.

Right: NASA astronauts on the Moon will use the metric system. [Larger image] [Larger image] The decision is a victory not only for the metric system itself, which by this decision increases its land area in the solar system by 27%, but also for the spirit of international cooperation in exploring the Moon.

Further, regarding the use of the Metric System during earlier NASA programs, it really came into prominence during the days of Skylab and ASTP. Examination of some NASA publications of that day, such as the "Mission Reports"-series, show a definite transition over to the Metric world.

The Constellation Program, a NASA project for human spaceflight, was granted permission to not be metric-compliant, for which NASA has received criticism.

The primary reason for this was the $ million [16] price tag required for contractors to convert all of the prior work and documentation to metric units. 1. Requirements. The Software Development or Management Plan shall contain: (SWE) a.
