DOY 147

GOES
NOTE: The GOES NOP Ground System has been experiencing intermittent software interprocess communication problems between workstations and servers across the network where procs at times will freeze or the connection between devices will drop. Root cause under investigation.
GOES-13 continues to be supported from the WBU.

GOES12 DOY 147 images corrupt or missing from 09:58Z to 11:45Z due to a Imager instrument cycle slip anomaly.

All other GOES operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
No anomalies affecting product delivery or s/c health & safety.
For GOES status and other information please see:

POES
N15 NOTE: On DOY 070 N15 Gyro-2 was turned off due to current spikes which could have also impacted the last operational gyro (gyro-1). As a result of the transition to a reduced gyro attitude control mode users may experience significant geolocation errors in their products. Engineers are reporting a 2.5 degree average attitude error about the yaw axis.

N17 NOTE: Due to a NOAA-17 AVHRR Scan Motor problems AVHRR imagery will experience periods of instability. This cycling of instability is a end of life condition and not expected to permanently improve.

All other POES operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
No anomalies affecting product delivery or s/c health & safety.
