There were normal operations for all five instruments during this week. A 30-second drag make-up maneuver was conducted on October 30.
The Mission Operations Center received concurrence from the Terra Science Team for maintenance of a 10:32 a.m. equatorial crossing time. This will require an inclination maneuver in December 2001. This plan avoids any conflicts with the SAC-C satellite.
The Data Lynz site at Fairbanks was successfully exercised this week. Also, a test of the ASTER Direct Downlink (DDL) capability was conducted at the Alaska Ground Station.
