Date Time Component Description
11/14/200614:00:00  HIRS Outgas Heater Off end test for METOP
11/13/200614:15:00 HIRS Outgas Heater On. Implemented as a test to supply HIRS outgassing data to METOP HIRS.
09/28/200617:00:00 Major spacecraft attitude perturbation resulted in autonomous battery undervoltage safing macro implementation turning off HIRS.
08/14/200615:26:00ELECTRONICSTurn HIRS Electronics BACK on.
08/10/200617:55:00ELECTRONICSHIRS electronics commanded off for safing reasons due to high patch temperatures observed during the pitch over maneuver.
