04/09/201316:04:38 Turn on HIRS outgas heater
03/28/201317:23:15SCAN MOTORPlace HIRS to nominal Position Mode
03/26/201316:31:18SCAN MOTORPlace HIRS into Space Position
02/28/201302:00:00SCAN MOTOR** STORED COMMAND ***Disable HIRS Position Mode
02/26/201320:55:15SCAN MOTORSet HIRS to space position
02/22/201315:51:44 This will power on the electronics, return the filter motor to normal mode and enable calibrations.
02/21/201316:14:59 This will disable the heater and enable the patch control.
01/30/201316:38:55 Turn off patch control. Disable routine calibrations. Turn off electronics. Turn on heater.
