Project and Program Management

GGTI provides program management services for all of its government support activities. GGTI staff is most actively involved in managing specialized technical evaluation projects, including planning, personnel oversight, activity execution, and technical report production.

GGTI has managed software development projects for the FAA, including ATO Mission Support Tools such as

  • Traffic Analysis Review Program (TARP)
  • Comprehensive Electronic Data Analysis and Reporting (CEDAR)
  • Systematic Air Traffic Operations Research Initiative (SATORI)

GGTI has also provided program management support for

  • Safety Management Tracking System (SMTS)

Our personnel manages our government and private industry support contracts, which typically include

  • Resource management and allocation
  • Scheduling
  • Expectation management
  • Strategic planning for long and short-term technical support work

GGTI personnel is familiar with many program and project management frameworks, including the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).

Policy Development

Our policy experts ensure successful policy implementation through analysis of existing policies and the implications of new policies.

GGTI has played a key role in supporting the development of the FAA ATO SMS. 


Risk Assessment

We carry a unique perspective on safety management, drawing from our involvement in the creation and development of the ATO SMS and other ATO safety initiatives. We have accrued a tremendous safety management knowledge base and developed important “lessons learned” from our hands-on support. GGTI also supports the continued implementation and execution of safety performance monitoring, helping to establish and use measurable safety risk criteria.

Software Development

As a process-oriented organization, we focus on facilitating underlying processes with the technology we deliver.

We have played a key role in providing the project management and software development for the FAA’s Safety Management Tracking System (SMTS), which implements a customized COTS tool based on the Python and Java programming languages.

GGTI software developers have additionally worked on business process automation tools for the FAA and private industry clients.


Independent Operational Test & Evaluation

GGTI has been conducting Independent Operational Assessments (IOAs), formerly Independent Operational Test and Evaluations (IOT&Es), on the highest-priority FAA acquisitions since 1997. IOAs are integral inputs to the decision-making process for each acquisition’s In-Service Decision, which is generally a requirement for national deployment.

IOAs involve managing a team of subject matter experts that collects large quantities of operational observations and technical data that must be provided to decision-makers in an easily understandable format. GGTI’s test engineering processes, grounded in Quality Management System principles, allow for hundreds of data points to be reduced to a handful of core system issues so that the right information can be communicated effectively and efficiently.

Systems on which GGTI has performed IOAs include

  • En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM)
  • Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)
  • Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS)
  • Airport Surface Detection Equipment Model X (ASDE-X)
  • Data Communications (DataComm), and more

National Airspace System (NAS) Expertise

Our Air Traffic Control, Pilots and Technical Operations subject matter experts have extensive experience at the country’s most complex airspace and ATC facilities. They draw on this experience to ensure the flying public is safe by assessing complex NAS changes, providing expert safety documentation review, and facilitating Safety Risk Management (SRM) panels.


Data Science

Our data scientists crunch through extensive datasets to provide answers to complex problems. We translate these answers from complex data relationships to business terms our customers use daily.

Our scientists and analysts use sophisticated techniques such as linear regression, decision tree, Naive Bayes, KNN, K-Means, random forest, etc., to help its customers understand what its data is saying. Whether the problem predicts an outcome, classifying an event, or assigning weights, our data scientists can solve the toughest problems.

Technical Writing and Editing

Our technical writers and editors manage documents from the initial drafting stage to publication, applying intense attention to detail while adhering to “the bigger picture.”

Our technical writers and editors develop a wide range of products including technical reports, online training modules, user manuals, and multimedia content. Working closely alongside GGTI’s subject matter experts, our writing and editing team authors original documents and improves the quality of existing materials by focusing on granular details such as grammar and syntax as well as overall aesthetics, flow, and purpose. We ensure every deliverable is clear, accurate, and appropriate for the target audience.
