This Week's Scheduled MODIS Activities Not Completed:


Upcoming MODIS Events:

Calibrations for March include Door Table Dumps, biweekly SDSM, monthly SRCA Full Radiometric, and bimonthly SRCA Full Spatial calibrations.


The next Aqua MODIS Lunar Calibration Roll will be scheduled for 2004/092 (April 1, 2004). Data collect time is 02:44:25 to 02:50:52 GMT. The roll angle will be -12.1168 degrees. The roll will occur 9 hours after the IAM#2 (see below).

The second Aqua Inclination Adjust Maneuver (IAM#2) has been rescheduled to 2004/091 (March 31, 2004), between 15:11:00 and 15:42:21 GMT. The maneuver will consist of a -79.2 degree yaw and a 600-second thruster burn. All of the maneuver will be completed in Spacecraft Night.

No official date has yet been scheduled for the Aqua Deep Space Calibration pitch maneuver(s).

MODIS Anomalies:


General Instrument Comments:

FM1 MODIS is in Science Mode. The SVD and NAD are Open, the survival heaters are enabled, and the Black Body is heated to 285 K.

MODIS Telemetry Trends:

The FM1 MODIS instrument telemetry is trending nominally.
