Huygens seventh in-flight checkout report

Seventh in-flight checkout report; 22-23 March 2001

Cassini was at a distance of 880 million km and the one-way-light-time delay was approximately 49 minutes. The telemetry was received in quasi-real-time at the Huygens Probe Operation Centre in ESOC, Darmstadt, during a Deep Space Network Goldstone station pass.

The Huygens Flight Control Team at ESOC performed a preliminary analysis of the received data. The results of this analysis confirmed that the Probe and the on-board Instruments performed well during F7 and that the Huygens system is in good health in checkout configuration.

Soon after completion of the check-out, the data was distributed to the Huygens instrument teams and to the Huygens Prime Contractor for detailed analysis.
