The successful operation of the LIGO and Virgo detectors and key infrastructure are critical to enabling gravitational-wave astronomy.
Gravitational wave detections are made possible by optimized instrument sensitivity and uptime, well-characterized noise, accurately calibrated data, and robust computational infrastructure that supports not only the detectors but also the data analysis pipelines used to identify and characterize gravitational wave signals.

These activities are undertaken by the LIGO Laboratory in collaboration with the broader LIGO Scientific Collaboration, and the Virgo Collaboration.
Coordination of efforts between LIGO and Virgo is organized through the Joint Run Planning Committee (JRPC) as well as between partner groups.
