The MODIS Characterization Support Team briefed the science team representatives the performance of MODIS instrument after the safe-mode recovery. Below is the presentation summarizing the instrument performance after the safe-mode recovery.

Terra MODIS transitioned to science mode at 2016/055 at 19:26:34 GMT. More updates relating to instrument health and performance will be posted when available.

Last night (2/22/2016) the Terra FOT successfully recovered the Terra spacecraft from Safe-Mode back to Normal mode. A Command Authorization Meeting (CAM) was scheduled this morning (02/23/2016) to review the plan to recover the MODIS instrument. The recovery of the MODIS instrument is currently in progress. Updates will be posted periodically.

Terra spacecraft entered safe mode (2016/049: 14:33:17) during an IAM. This caused MODIS to enter safe mode as well. The nadir and the space-view doors are closed as expected. The solar diffuser door is still open (since the anomaly from July, 2003). Updates will be posted periodically.
