Mission StatusConstellation manoeuvres were finished on 4 July. C3 and C4 were put at 17 km from each other, their closest separation distance in the Cluster lifetime. This constellation will allow investigating very small plasma structures in the tail of the magnetosphere.

Mission StatusAll instruments are currently switched on and functioning nominally. Nutation operations are proceeding as planned, using closed-loop Conscan and SOLACE manoeuvres (open-loop slews together with Conscan) to maintain Earth pointing and damp nutation.

Report for the Period 28 October to 3 November 2007The activities during this week cover routine operations in Quadrature. These operations are severely constrained due to the special thermal restrictions that apply during Quadrature phase.The swap from HGA2 to HGA1 was also carried out this week.

Report for period 13 - 26 October 2007The reporting period covers a period of 2 weeks of Active Cruise Mode characterised byactivities linked to the preparation of the Earth Swing-by. Frequent tracking passes are taken inorder to assess the spacecraft trajectory. On 18 October a Trajectory Control Manoeuvrehas been performed to set the...

Report for the Period 21 October to 27 October 2007Following last week's entry in Quadrature phase, the activities during this week cover routine operations in Quadrature. These operations are severely constrained due to the special thermal restrictions that apply during Quadrature phase.

Report for Period 14 October to 20 October 2007The Main activity during this week has been the entrance in Quadrature on the 19 October 2007. The procedure was fully automated as part of the routine plan following the experience of the previous quadrature. The fake ephemeris was again applied in GSP before the AOS inCebreros.

Report for Period 19 August to 25 August 2007Routine observations took place during this reporting period, occurring as planned except forVIRTIS operations. Three occurrences of a solar array pointing anomaly were seen over DOY235/236, the last two leading to one of the SA motors being declared failed.

Report for Period 12 August to 18 August 2007Routine observations took place during this reporting period, occurring as planned except for VIRTIS operations. The VIRTIS movie had to be stopped due to an unexplained anomaly of the H-cooling motor current the triggered an OOL. The M unit is not affected by the anomaly as is expected to resume...
