DOY 233



GOES
NOTES: Remote Product Monitor (RPM) continues to intermittently disconnect from the SOCC servers, investigation ongoing.

Numerous frame breaks were observed on GOES 14. Wallops reports RFI in form of a "square wave" was present and interfering with the sensor data downlink. Wallops is investigating.

All other GOES operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
No anomalies affecting product delivery via GVAR or s/c health &
safety. For more GOES information please see:

POES
NOTE: Both Fairbanks and Wallops CDAS experienced COM1 matrix switch errors which caused continuous red alarms but no operational impact. Penetration testing is believed to be the root cause.

All other POES operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
No anomalies affecting product delivery or s/c health & safety.

DMSP
NOTE: On Aug 20 at 1330z, all systems began failing due to penetration testing. DMSP control was failed over to PEAK at 1448z. No data was lost due to this event.

Cat 1 data loss for Flt 18 at 1346z for Rev 24948 due to BOSS ground site unable to go active.

All other DMSP operations were nominal over the past 24 hours.
No anomalies affecting product delivery or s/c health & safety.

ESPC reported data outages or delays
Since the promotion of new production rules yesterday for NDE, the ACSPO regional subset products and blended SST products were not created. Engineering has identified the resolution and should implement correction shortly.

Data Lost:
None.

Data Delayed:
ESPC still not receiving Windsat data. Monterey reports they are investigating issue and length of delay is unknown at this time.
