dc.description.abstract The Orbiting Carbon Observatory – 3 (OCO-3) is a NASA Earth-monitoring payload, designed and built by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to perform space-based observation of variations of global carbon dioxide (CO2) by sampling its emission sources and gradients from the unique vantage point of the International Space Station (ISS). This paper describes the development and results of the end-to-end verification, validation and calibration activities that were performed to meet OCO-3's science measurement, functional and performance requirements prior to launch. The pre-launch activities encompassed a suite of tests and analyses that were performed after payload integration and during launch vehicle integration that helped the OCO-3 project demonstrate its launch and mission readiness in terms of ISS compatibility, ground-based instrument calibrations, flight dynamics and environmental integrity and pointing knowledge and accuracy.
