Technical Data Package

The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Technical Data Package (TDP) is the complete documented set of technical information, data, software, and drawings that describe the system to the level necessary to manufacture, implement, test, and maintain the OOI.  The TDP is provided as an online public resource for those interested in detailed technical information about the program.

The Technical Data Package is organized into sequential baseline document sets.  A TDP “baseline” is a snapshot in time containing the contents of the TDP at a particular milestone. The four milestones are 1) Final Network Design (FND), 2) Critical Design Review, 3) Production Readiness Review, and 4) deployment of OOI infrastructure.

All milestone documents are available through the online Technical Data Package repository.  Only the Design and As Built documents are highlighted here.

AS-BUILT

The As-Built Baseline is established after the item has been produced and deployed.  It provides an update to the Design Baseline, or Production Baseline if a PRR occurred, including corrections of discrepancies discovered during the production, deployment, and verification testing of the item.  The As-Built Baseline represents the installed system, including any deployment location specific information.  The contents of the As-Built Baseline for each deployed platform are documented in an MS Excel file.  The files can be found by navigating to the folder for the desired array and then to the folder for the desired platform.  The individual drawings and documents referenced by the MS Excel file can be found by following the Supporting Documents link.  The baselines for some items may not be available or may not be complete due to intellectual property restrictions, corporate proprietary restrictions, or International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

DESIGN BASELINE

The Critical Design Review (CDR) evaluates the progress, technical adequacy, and risk associated with the detailed design solution prior to the release of drawings/specifications for manufacture or purchase of materials.  The emphasis of this review is threefold: 1) complete representation of the detailed designs and its interfaces; 2) the description of how the proposed design meets the associated requirements; and 3) the overall risk to proceed into implementation.  A CDR describes how technical, schedule, and cost risks have been mitigated.  Each CDR also presents the test, operation, and maintenance schedule along with a completed test plan and preliminary test procedures.

After design documents have gone through the CDR, they become the TDP Design Baseline documents.  Please note that the baselines for some items may not be available or may not be complete due to intellectual property restrictions, corporate proprietary restrictions, or International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
