ISS MER Daily Report


Date: 10/15/00


STS 92/ISS 3A


GMT: 289:08:00 To GMT: 290:08:00


(3:00 a.m. 10-15-00 to 3:00 a.m. 10-16-00)


OVERALL SYSTEM STATUS:



All ISS systems are in nominal flight/stage configuration with the exception of the following:



Previously Reported Status



  • FGB Smoke Detectors 1, 3, 4, and 5 have been powered OFF.

  • SM Smoke Detector 7 is failed.

  • SM Solar Array #II portion of inboard panel segment not deployed.

  • SM Batteries #4 and #5 are off line.

  • The Orbiter Ku band has failed and the S-band is used to downlink the SWIS data through Ground

Stations.


  • Docking was nominal, with the exception that no "close" indication of X4 connector was received. The only active function that passes through this connection is a 1553 Bus. Telemetry data verified that there was data flowing through this bus. Inspection of the connector during the EVA is being discussed.

  • Loss of Orbiter Payload Cabin 3 bus took out OSVS, keel camera, and OIU 1. Backup SVS was recovered to support Z1 installation.

  • Vacuum Access Jumper leak check failed the pressurization and leak test of the Z1 dome. Initial assessment is that leakage observed in the VAJ was due to temperature rebound after VAJ was isolated from space vacuum.

  • Audiotape of PMA APAS hatch opening indicated that a clunk noise was heard earlier than expected (fewer turns of the handle). Clunk is probably caused by hatch rollers disengaging from support bracket. S&M is investigating number of turns required for full travel and where disengagement normally occurs.


Last 24 Hours Status:


  • The commanding during the EVA 1 was done using OIU as prime and Russian Ground Sites as backup.

  • EVA 1 completed at GMT 289:20:45. The following S-band and Ku-band operations were completed successfully:

  • SASA relocation

  • Installation of SGANT dish to Ku-band boom.

  • Ku-band boom deployment.

  • ESTD Installation.

  • Both strings of Node to Z1 Umbilicals were successfully connected without incident. Part of the umbilical connection required the deactivation of RACU 6 and RACU 5, which in turn powers down the Node 1 MDMs. The RACUs were reactivated and the MDMs resumed nominal operation.

  • The CMGs continue to experience temperatures that are within the pre-flight predictions.

  • Crew was unable to hard dock APFR in WIF Z1-21 due to hard interference between WIF Flange and APFR Bolts. A thermal shield that was installed on the Load Limiter of the APFR appears to be the culprit. APFR was placed in WIF Z1-20 and boom deploy task was completed free float. Further investigation is in process.

  • Crew was unable to completely seat one of the four ports ETSD bolts. Only three of four bolts are required for structural integrity. No impacts unless problem with bolt removal. It is suspected that the bolt did not seat due to insufficient torque applied.

  • Activated Node 1 heaters 1A, 1B, 2A, 3B, 5A, 7B, 8A and 8B.

  • Activated Z1 dome heater to help warm up the Node. Node avg. temperatures fell to 26 deg. C during EVA-1

  • FGB batteries now in full charge mode.

  • FGB to Node 1 power allocation is currently 1750 W.

  • FGB Batteries are in full (complete) charge mode.

  • SM Batteries are in partial (incomplete) charge mode.


SIGNIFICANT EVENTS SCHEDULED FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS:



  • EVA 2 Egress @ GMT: 291: 14:47 (09:47 am 10-16-00)

  • PMA 3 RMS Grapple @ GMT: 291:14:33 (09:33 am10-16-00)

  • PMA 3 Install @ GMT: 291:17:27 (12:27 pm 10-16-00)

  • EVA 2 Egress @ GMT: 291:20:57 (03:57 pm 10-1-00)
