Topic: GOES-17 SEISS MPS-LO Electron and Ion Microchannel Plate (MCP) HV Bias Calibration (impacts SEISS)
Date/Time Issued: March 12, 2020 1645 UTC
Product(s) or Data Impacted: GOES-17 SEISS MPS-LO
Date/Time of Initial Impact: March 16, 2020 1430 UTC
Date/Time of Expected End: March 17, 2020 1630 UTC
Length of Outage: 26 hours of product degradation
Details/Specifics of Change: A GOES-17 (GOES-WEST) SEISS MPS-LO Electron and Ion Microchannel Plate (MCP) HV Bias Calibration will be performed from March 16, 2020 14:30 UTC to March 17, 2020 16:30UTC. The calibration will consist of 2 hours of commanding followed by a 24 hour power off of the MPS-LO Deflection Electrode High Voltage (required for performance data collection). SEISS MPS-LO will experience data degradation during this 26 hour period until the Deflection Electrode High Voltage is powered back on returning the sensor to nominal operation.
This planned SEISS MPS-LO Calibration will be cancelled due to CWD or if the Space Weather environment is not appropriate for the calibration.
