None

Upcoming MODIS Events:

Upcoming February calibrations include weekly SDSM SCREENED, SRCA Full Radiometric, SRCA 10W Radiometric, PV Ecal, and Lunar Calibration. A special request has also been made for a 20 minute Formatter Day Rate over Groundtrack Night collection along the Southern African Coast.

Maneuvers:

The next Lunar Calibration will occur on DOY 2004/070 (March 10, 2004), with a data collect time from 23:27:40 to 23:34:10. The necessary roll angle is -19.4329 degrees. The MODIS data will be adjusted for Day Rate and Sector Rotation as is standard for a Lunar Calibration.

MODIS Anomalies:

MODIS NAD (Nadir Aperture Door) Anomaly:

Telemetry still indicates that the “NAD Open” (MOD_CR_DR_NAD_OPEN) trigger is set to the “NOT_OPEN” position; however, science data has shown that the NAD is open. The NAD OPEN trigger may yet “pop” to OPEN due to thermal cycling on the trigger, as was seen on 2002/079.

Terra SSR Anomaly:

Although not directly the result of a MODIS problem, the most recent Printed Wire Assembly (PWA) failures in the Terra Solid State Recorder (SSR) do affect MODIS data. See the Non-MODIS Significant Events section below for more details.

General Instrument Comments:

MODIS is in Science Mode, using all A-side components, but cross-strapped to Formatter B, with the blackbody maintained at 290K and the Solar Diffuser Door at the Screened position.

MODIS Telemetry Trends:

Nominal telemetry trending is ongoing.

Non-MODIS Significant Events:

Terra Solid State Recorder Anomaly

Overview:

The SSR Anomaly is still under investigation. MODIS currently is operating with 34 Supersets allotted for its buffer. There are plans in the works for possibly power cycling the SSR to get back PWA's that are in the Bad List, but no date has yet been set. There are no current plans for a change in science data capture rates. For details, see previous reports.
