Discussion of ESMOS Top Ten Issues

The Mission System top ten issues were discussed by K. Dolan.

#1 — FY02 budget — We a still closely monitoring costs; the situation is looking better.

#3 — Readiness of Ground Network to support Aqua: One more test is scheduled for early April. There was approximately 95% data collection during the last GN test.

#4 — NACs: Interim NACs are approximately 99% completed. This item will be lowered in the top ten list.

#5 — Getting a contract in place to provide anomaly support from LMMS, SBRS, and L3COM: An update is due.

#6 — End of Mission planning for ERBS and UARS: Meetings have been scheduled with Phil Sabelhaus, Bill Townsend, and Code Y for both ERBS and UARS. There is a lot of activity by the science community to get additional funds for both ERBS and UARS.

#7 — NCR: Three documents were approved including updated ESMO anomaly procedures. Also changes to the CM procedure have been approved.

#8 — USGS has not provided money to cover FY02 Landsat-7 network costs. NASA has not budgeted for this cost: We should be able to start funding paperwork through the system in one week.
