Project and Program Management

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

GGTI has managed large software development projects for the FAA, including ATO Mission Support Tools such as the Traffic Analysis Review Program (TARP), Comprehensive Electronic Data Analysis and Reporting (CEDAR), and the Systematic Air Traffic Operations Research Initiative (SATORI). Additionally, GGTI has provided program management support for the Safety Management Tracking System (SMTS).

Our personnel manage our government and private industry support contracts, which typically include resource management and allocation, scheduling, expectation management, and strategic planning for long and short term technical support work.

GGTI personnel are 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. GGTI has helped to develop much of the policy surrounding the application of software assurance levels to air traffic control systems. Additionally, GGTI supports the ATO’s Safety Risk Case Management process by reviewing safety documentation associated with FAA acquisitions.

GGTI has a unique perspective on safety management, having been involved in the ATO Safety organization since its inception of SMS. It has accrued a tremendous safety management knowledge base and has experienced important “lessons learned” from the implementation process. GGTI supports the continued implementation and execution of Safety Performance Monitoring, both helping to establish and ultimately assess measurable criteria for safety risk.


Software Development

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

GGTI has played a key role in both 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.


Test Engineering

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.


Air Traffic Expertise

Our Air Traffic Control and Technical Operations subject matter experts have extensive experience at the country’s most complex facilities.

Our experts make sure the flying public is safe by assessing complex National Airspace System (NAS) changes. We provide expert safety documentation review and facilitate Safety Risk Management (SRM) panels.


Data Science

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

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 is predicting an outcome, classifying an event, or assigning weights, our data scientists can solve the toughest problems.
