Report for Period 3 August to 9 August 2008 All operations have been nominal during the reporting period. The fourth and final pair of Orbit Control Manoeuvres (OCMs) to lower the pericenter altitude and to raise the apocentre altitude was executed. For the first time, there have been clear indications of a very low level of atmospheric drag...

Report for Period 22 June to 28 June 2008The reporting period was the first complete week of nominal science operations after the solar conjunction phase.
Published: 2 July 2008
Report for Period 15 June to 21 June 2008The reporting period covered the last days of solar conjunction phase operations (ending on 19 June), the reconfiguration of the solid state mass memory (SSMM) and the resume of science activities. Commanding tests and recording of open loop data continued until the exit from the conjunction phase.
Published: 24 June 2008
Report for Period 8 June to 14 June 2008The reporting period covered conjunction phase operations. During this phase, groundstation pass operations are reduced: no science activities are carried out, no solid state mass memory (SSMM) dumping takes place.
