Objectives Hierarchy

The Office of Safety and Mission Assurance (OSMA) has introduced a new objectives-based approach to better support NASA’s increasingly complex missions in a changing design environment. By focusing on objectives, OSMA hopes that the new standards will be more flexible, agile and cost-effective, and will allow more ingenuity to achieve objectives. It will serve as a guide to help programs and projects plan how they will meet their objectives, instead of dictating what they must do to via prescriptive requirements. Read the article, "OSMA Introduces New Objectives-Based Strategies," to learn more about objective hierarchies.

Communications

At least twice a year, the Range Flight Safety program manager releases a report that

  1. Describes the activities at various NASA ranges that are relevant to NASA civil service personnel, contractors and providers
  2. Provides accurate and actionable responses to the annual Office of Safety and Mission Assurance survey of program and discipline health

Previously, the Range Flight Safety program published an Annual Report funded by the Office of Safety and Mission Assurance. The report was an overview of NASA Range Safety for current and potential range users. You can find an archive of the Annual Reports below.
