Requirements & Reviews

HiPERCAM requirements and design reviews.


The HiPERCAM project began with the definition of the various instrument requirements. Once these had been set, we followed a standard design review process. First, the Preliminary Design Review (PDR), during which it was demonstrated that the preliminary design met all of the requirements with acceptable risk and within the budget and time constraints. Second, the Critical Design Review (CDR), at which it was demonstrated that the design was at the stage that manufacture, assembly, integration and testing (MAIT) could begin.
