Length of Outage:
Ground Station in Suitland, MD stopped sending 406 MHz alert
data at 0205Z. The LUT Vendor found that Maryland 1 accepted a
cold reboot command, but did not process due to a communication
issue. Both servers were manually restarted and the LUT
returned to Normal Operation at 0303Z.
Impact:Minor-There is no impact on distress alert detection/reporting timeliness due to the redundancy of the SARSAT GEOLUT system.
