SATOPS MORNING REPORT – September 22, 2000
NOAA-L Daily Status Report (Abridged copy)
The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) was turned on and
engineering data verifies nominal operation. The Advanced Microwave Sounding
Unit-B (AMSU B) was also turned on successfully.
The spacecraft subsystems are all reporting routine operations.
The spacecraft will be placed into “encrypted mode” for commanding during
the next 24 hours.
Some minor ground system problems with regards to data coming into SOCC
have appeared and contingencies were utilized.
Another playback of the launch boost data to the Fairbanks CDA is planned
in order to guarantee that pre-launch and ascent data is archived.
No change in the status of the POES spacecraft.
NOAA-15 rev 12264W: The IMUX failed to start at the beginning
of the contact, Wallops personnel intervened and started the IMUX late
resulting in recovery of 71% of G2B. 100% of G2B was received during
the next rev, also at WCDA.
No change in the status of the DMSP spacecraft.
DMSP operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
No change in the status of the GOES spacecraft.
