Report for period 7 December 2009 to 22 January 2010Mission operations of the Herschel space observatory continued nominally during the reporting period, with the spacecraft and subsystems all performing as expected. The critical parts of the HIFI recovery have now been completed with the back-up electronics successfully switched on.

Report for Period 26 December 2009 to 15 January 2010The reporting period covers three weeks of operations for the Rosetta spacecraft. Early in the reporting period on DoY 001 the spacecraft experienced a safe mode. This was triggered by a problem on one of the subsystems' Remote Terminal Units (RTUs). The spacecraft was fully recovered and the...

Report for Period 27 December 2009 to 2 January 2010The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. On 29 December (DOY 363) the Venus Express operations entered the solar conjunction phase. During this phase, which will last until 22 January 2010, no science activities are planned and there are fewer, plus...

Report for Period 20 December to 26 December 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during the reporting period. This week's activities focussed on performing the last science operations before Venus Express operations enter the solar conjunction phase on 29 December. All commands related to autonomous operations...

Report for Period 28 November to 25 December 2009The reporting period covers four weeks of nominal operations for the Rosetta spacecraft. Following the successful completion of the mission's last Earth swingby in the previous reporting period, all instruments are currently switched off. The spacecraft is now cruising towards asteroid Lutetia....

Report for Period 13 December to 19 December 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. The mission planning activities were focussed on the planning for the next two weeks leading up to the solar conjunction period, and for the conjunction period itself, which runs from 29 December 2009 to 22 January...

Report for Period 6 December to 12 December 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. A pre-solar conjunction test was successfully performed at Cebreros on DOY 343. The outcome of the test was the final ground station configuration set-up that will be used during the upcoming phase of Venus Express...

Report for period 17 November to 7 December 2009Mission operations of the Herschel space observatory continued nominally during the reporting period, with the spacecraft and subsystems all performing as expected. Following the formal approval of the HIFI recovery plan on 25 November, its implementation is well underway, with the complete switch...

Report for Period 29 November to 5 December 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. Strong rain at the site of the Cebreros ground station on 29 November temporarily affected the downlink. Part of the data originally planned to be transmitted to Earth was stored aboard Venus Express and successfully...

Report for Period 14 November to 27 November 2009The reporting period covers the first two weeks after Rosetta's third Earth swingby. The scientific observations linked to the Earth swingby phase were concluded successfully. Fine orbit determination computations were conducted after the Earth swingby to verify Rosetta was on the desired outbound...

Report for Period 15 November to 21 November 2009The 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...

Report for Period 7 November to 13 November 2009On 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,...

Report for Period 31 October to 6 November 2009During 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).
