STATUS: 03.21.08

Spacecraft Status

AIM continues to perform well following the transition to the normal pointing mode on March 8, 2008. All spacecraft subsystems are operating as expected. The instruments were turned back on last Friday (March 14th). All of them are working nominally and taking science data. The flight operations team continues to make good progress towards enabling more autonomous operations.

Instrument Status

All instruments have been on since last Friday the 14th, and are currently collecting data.

All SOFIE engineering parameters are "green" and there are no status error messages. A SOFIE reset was performed to re-transfer the SSB EEPROM FSW image. Reset and image transfer was completed successfully with no science data loss. The data for 2007 has been validated and released. This does not include the 13 arcmin data, which will require additional analysis and software development before Level 2 processing can be performed. There were only a few events that were deemed unsatisfactory and were not released. The 2008 data will be released next week.

All CIPS data collected through February 7, 2008, when the spacecraft entered “SAFE hold”, have been processed and examined. The CIPS instrument was turned back on following the “SAFE hold” event at 18:06 GMT March 14th. Full data processing and analysis is now under way after the successful CIPS turn on sequence. The CIPS instrument has worked flawlessly, collecting data over the Northern 2007 and most of the Southern 2007/2008 cloud seasons. CIPS data have been cited in many general publications due to its unprecedented images of Polar Mesospheric Clouds. CIPS data for the first two PMC seasons are available on the AIM web site.

CDE is on and collecting dust impact data following the completion of the Recovery ATS. Temperatures and voltages are nominal. CDE had one watchdog reset on DOY 2008/078, and was successfully reset by Autonomy. CDE Version 2 data processing is being implemented for Levels 1 (Charge) and 2 (Mass). Before this can be officially released, a conclusion on some missing attitude data must be addressed.
