Year Start time Stop time Orbits Planned Description
2002 01/03/2002 01/03/2002 1 YES ENVISAT Launch from Kourou, French Guiana
2002 08/03/2002 14/03/2002 - YES GOMOS Instrument Control Unit (ICU) on, to standby mode
2002 14/03/2002 18/03/2002 - YES The Instrument is in Heater with the Mechanism Drive Electronics (MDE) off.  Note that a low temperature monitoring limit of the Steering Front Assembly triggered a reconfiguration of GOMOS into Standby/refuse mode. The monitoring threshold was decreased from –8deg C to –12 deg C and the Flight Operations Plan/Flight Operations Manual (FOP/FOM) will be updated to reflect that modification
2002 18/03/2002 19/03/2002 - YES The major event for GOMOS was the release of the Steering Front Assembly (SFA) which was successfully completed over a combined Kiruna/Vilspa pass. After this a SFA calibration was performed
2002 19/03/2002 19/03/2002 - YES The GOMOS Steering Front Assembly was unlocked succesfully (allows pointing of the telescope in azimuth and elevation). The instrument driven by mission planning performs star occultation measurements in a nominal manner (first star spectra have been generated). Note that a misalignment of 0.3 deg was identified (acquisition of the stars at the edge of the CCD) and temporarily corrected by an angular bias offset. An Anomaly Report was raised.
