Details/Specifics of Change:
On August 28, 2018, S-NPP CERES FM5 will be commanded into
Diagnostic and Standby Mode to permit the upload of new FSW PROM
Dump2 that Langley Research Center (LaRC) requested. This FSW patch
that contains a modified instrument sequence for slot thirteen which
was previously unused.
This new FSW will help LaRC verify the health of the onboard
instrument PROM chips to ensure they haven't been damaged by space
weather. This will also help to set the PROMs to the default
configuration in case of an unexpected instrument reset. CERES will
produce the Diagnostic APID while in Diagnostic and Standby Modes,
including during the Memory Dump.
SNPP Svalbard 35416 15:41:02Z - 15:53:46Z CERES will be commanded
to Diagnostic Mode, FSW memory loaded, commanded to Stanby, and
commanded to perform a RAM Dump that will continue to perform past
SNPP Svalbard 35417 17:24:51Z - 17:36:02Z CERES commanded to
Crosstrack mode and restored to nominal operations.
