Date Time Component Description
01/10/201212:00:00DTR2ARemoved from ground schedules due to degraded performance.
06/05/201012:00:00DTR3ADTR 3A has singificant gaps reported for data after testing. Status changed to Orange
06/04/201020:57:31DTR3ANOAA-15's DTR3A performed 3 STIP records/playbacks from 10:30:00 -20:57:31 UTC on JDay 155 as part of data gap testing
06/03/201013:42:15DTR3ANOAA-15's DTR3A performed 3 LAC records/playbacks from 01:10:00-13:42:15 UTC on JDay 153 as part of data gap testing
06/01/201023:57:20DTR3ANOAA-15's DTR3A performed 3 GAC records/playbacks from 05:00:00-23:57:20 UTC on JDay 152 as part of data gap testing.
06/01/201003:53:02DTR3ANOAA-15's DTR3A was re-stacked from 03:43:00-03:53:02 UTC on JDay 152 as part of data gap testing.
01/25/201010:00:00DTR3ADTR3A removed from the schedules for ~1 month to see if data gaps in NOAA-15's GAC data dissipate.
11/29/200910:45:13AIP1Configured STX4 for AIP for a close approach call-up pass at McMurdo.
11/29/200910:45:13XSU1Cross-strapped AIP data stream to STX4.
11/29/200910:45:13XSU1Cleared data path configuration to STX4.

08/30/200518:00:00TIP2Dwell test complete. Return to dwelling on bus voltage NPSEBUSV Channel number 153
08/30/200514:45:00TIP2Dwell (1 sec) on NSADBDPY channel number 274
10/30/200419:45:00XSU1Command HRPT data stream back onto STX-2 after it was inadvertently de-configured.
10/30/200414:40:00XSU1HRPT data deconfigured from STX-2. No HRPT data for several hours.
03/01/200417:04:00DTR5AStop DTR-5A. Channel 228 test inconclusive.
03/01/200417:03:00DTR5APlay DTR5A forward for 3 minutes test TIP-2 Channel 228 operability for DTR5 Pressure.
01/10/2004TIP2TIP2 telemetry channels 224, 226 and 227 (TCE15H, TCE26H, N2 Low Pressure) are now static at anomolous values which are not believed to be valid.
12/23/200309:08:00TIP2TIP analog telemetry on 3 channels (224, 226, 227) appears invalid.
12/20/200213:15:00TIP1D/A converter readout drifting. Causing all analog values on board to drift higher. All analog telem values unreliable.
