No. 210 - Mission Operations Update

Report for Period 15 November to 21 November 2009

The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. A pre-solar conjunction test with a new ground station configuration was successfully performed at New Norcia on DOY 320. The test was done in preparation of the upcoming phase of Venus Express superior conjunction operations. These operations will cover a period of about three weeks around the superior conjunction of Venus on 11 January 2010. Another pre-solar conjunction test will be performed early December at the Cebreros ground station.

Report for period 21 October to 17 November 2009

Mission operations of the Herschel space observatory continued nominally during the reporting period, with the spacecraft and subsystems all performing as expected. The HIFI anomaly investigation has been concluded and the planned recovery activities are now expected to be formally approved on 25 November.

No. 124 - Successful Earth swingby

Report for Period 7 November to 13 November 2009

On 13 November at 07:45:40 UTC Rosetta flew past the Earth for its last swingby manoeuvre, which was conducted as planned and with the expected results. The final approach to the Earth was very stable and no further trajectory correction manoeuvres were required at the two remaining reserved slots, 24 hours and 6 hours before closest approach.

No. 123 - Earth swingby preparations

Report for Period 31 October to 6 November 2009

During the reporting period Rosetta's approach to the Earth for the swingby manoeuvre on 13 November continued according to the plan. The navigation campaign did not require any trajectory correction manoeuvre in the allocated slot on 5 November (DoY 309).

Main events and activities

On 2 October, ESA's Science programme Committee (SPC) approved an extension of mission operations, pushing back the mission end date to 31 December 2012 (with a confirmation mid-term review in 2010). On 5 October, a small orbit correction (with a delta-V of 4 cm/s) was executed to adjust the ground track for the HRSC instrument.

No. 122 - Earth swingby preparations

Report for Period 17 October to 30 October 2009

The reporting period covers two weeks of the navigation campaign leading to Rosetta's third Earth swingby on 13 November. The campaign's primary trajectory correction manoeuvre was successfully executed on DoY 295 to set the spacecraft onto the right path for the Earth swingby.
