The Status of the SCIAMACHY Active Thermal Control (ATC)

The Active Thermal Control System (ATC) is providing thermal stability to SCIAMACHY's optical bench module (OBM). Over the past 10 years in-orbit mission lifetime the ATC has proven extremely reliable. Although regular monitoring has revealed some degradation – less than what was predicted before launch – only a single adjustment was necessary so far to keep the OBM temperature within the specified limit. The ATC adjustment occurred in October 2008 in orbit 34643 [RD1 with referencing RD3-RD6].

SCIAMACHY Operations Information Long-term Archiving

This Technical Note (TN) describes the concept of long-term archiving of information related to SCIAMACHY operations and aspects of instrument performance. Such information comprises the tasks of the SCIAMACHY Operations Support Team (SOST) in phases C/D and E. SOST had been founded in 1996 by DLR's SCIAMACHY project management as a cooperation between DLR (then German Remote Sensing Data Center – DFD; now Remote Sensing Technology Institute – IMF) and the SCIAMACHY Principal Investigator's (PI) Institute of Environmental Physics / Institute of Remote Sensing (IUP-IFE) at the University of Bremen. 

SCIAMACHY Operations Concept III. Instrument States and Onboard Tables (PFM)

This Technical Note (TN) is the third volume in the trilogy of the SCIAMACHY Operation Concept TNs describing the basic knowledge about SCIAMACHY operations planning. It served prior to launch as input to the development of the ENVISAT ground segment, in particular to those systems that are required for mission planning and timelining. 

 

SCIAMACHY Operations Concept II. Timelines: Generation, Planning & Execution Rules and Reference Timelines

This Technical Note (TN) is the second volume in the trilogy of the SCIAMACHY Operation Concept TNs describing the basic knowledge about SCIAMACHY operations planning. It serves as input to the development of the ENVISAT ground segment, in particular to those systems that are required for mission planning and scheduling. 

SCIAMACHY Operations Change Request Catalogue 2003-2012

This Technical Note (TN) describes the complete suite of approved and implemented SCIAMACHY Operations Change Requests (OCR). After the end of the SCIAMACHY Operations Support Team (SOST) Phase F it will be the master OCR repository.  

SCIAMACHY In-Orbit Mission Report

This Technical Note (TN) describes the operational aspects of the in-orbit phase of the atmospheric science instrument SCIAMACHY (Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography) on-board the ESA ENVISAT mission. Following ENVISAT's fatal anomaly on April 8, 2012 and the unsuccessful recovery actions, the ENVISAT mission had been declared as ended by ESA on May 9, 2012.
