This Week's Scheduled MODIS Activities Not Completed:

Monday, October 16, 2000

2000/290 21:56:02-22:53:33 ATC SRCA Full Spatial TMON #66, SRCA A-side lamp current/voltage monitor tripped at the beginning of the 30W portion of the macro.

The first attempt to capture 15 minutes of day rate data over ground-track night failed. During this time, 3 minutes of night rate data were recorded over ground-track day.

Upcoming MODIS Events:

No activities have been planned for the upcoming week.

Maneuvers:

The next delta-v maneuver is scheduled for November 1st, 2000.

MODIS Anomalies:

TMON #66, the MODIS SRCA A-side lamp current/voltage monitor tripped on day 2000/290 shortly after beginning the 30W lamp portion of the macro. The TMON set the lamp usage to OFF, turned off the SRCA, and set inhibit ID #54 (MODIS SRCA commands). Because of this, the SRCA Filter wheel was left at step 100 rather than the home position.

A transient high current to the lamps appears to be a normal characteristic of the lamps. At this time, investigation is continuing to determine a possible correction to the TMON algorithm or alternate SRCA operating philosophy.

Continued monitoring for formatter errors and loss of cooler margin.

Attached to this report is a spreadsheet listing the times, addresses, formatter temperature, satellite ground track, and space craft day/night position for a select number of the formatter events that have occurred since DOY 256. The current event count is 2507. Due to the high number of recent events, not all have been updated in the anomaly log.

General Instrument Comments:

MODIS is in Science Mode on the A-side with the SVD and NAD open, operating with the Formatter Resolution Flight Software Patches.

MODIS Telemetry Trends:

The Radiative Cooler intermediate stage temperature has slowly been increasing since approximately day 240. During this time the LWIR focal plane heater margin has been decreasing. The IOT is continuing to trend these telemetry mnemonics.

Non-MODIS Significant Events:

None.
