OPS45 rev 46187 at 1503Z on August12 and rev 46201 on August 13 at 1450Z on August 13: SCCR 45-178 was performed to execute a combined 10-degree slew of the solar array to 42 degees so as not to interfere with the sun sensor assembly during the low sun angle.
All other DMSP operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
All POES operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
At 2349Z on August 13, 0001Z, and 0010Z on August 14, GOES-9 frame breaks were observed and attributed to frequency interference at the CDA.
At 1851Z, 1900Z, 1915Z on August 13, some GOES-10 image degradation was observed and attributed to local BER.
At 1940Z and 1953Z on August 13, GOES-10 frame breaks were observed and attributed to RFI at WCDA.
At 1401Z on August 13, GOES-12 frame break was observed and attributed to an IPS memory reset.
GOES battery reconditioning activities for all five spacecraft in process this week as part of normal pre-eclipse season preparations. For GOES Fall eclipse and KOZ schedule, please reference this web site: http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/SATS/eclipse.html .
GOES-8 continues its westward drift at 1.06 deg/day. The drift table with the estimated current position can be found at http://www.oso.noaa.gov/goes/GOES-8_Drift_Table.txt. GOES-8 will be stopped at 165E on or about August 24.
All GOES operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
