This Week's Scheduled MODIS Activities Not Completed:


This Month's Upcoming MODIS Events:

Calibrations for June will include an SDSM Screened (DOY 157), a Lunar Roll (DOY 162), an SRCA Radiometric (DOY 164), a Nighttime Day Mode Observation (DOY 175), an SRCA Spatial (DOY 177), and an SDSM Opened (DOY 178).

Friday, June 24, 2011

2010/175 11:08:00 MCL MOD_OA03_FR_DAY_RATE.1
OA-03: Formatter to Day Rate (night ground track)
2010/175 11:28:00 MCL MOD_OA03_FR_NIGHT_RATE.2
OA-03: Formatter to Night Rate (return to normal night rate)


There will be an Aqua Drag Make Up Maneuver (DMU) # 50 on DOY 173 (06/22/2011). The maneuver start time is set for 173/13:50:00 and the maneuver end time is set for 173/15:39:10. The maximum yaw angle for this maneuver will reach 14.35 degrees and the preliminary burn duration is 24.5 seconds. The preliminary loss of pointing accuracy times are 173/13:50:00 - 15:54:10.

MODIS Anomalies:
