T+ 389 Days Engineering Log

All boards are now green after completion of the testing and calibration session over the last 2 weeks. All our supplies have been topped off and the new XR5 has docked with our port side docking port. we are preparing to cast off the ISS sometime tomorrow morning and depart for the Lunar Station and the completion of SSTV-01 Mission #1. We will be using 8 of the EHEs (6 forward, 2 aft) for our TLI burn, 4 (2 forward, 2 aft) for each of the MCC's planned for our Earth to Moon trip, and 6 (4 forward,...

T+ 376 Days Engineering Log

After 10 days of phasing burns to reduce our EOI burn, it still took over 15 minutes of burn time before we were in a comfortable LEO and on approach to the ISS. Final docking with the ISS occurred at T+ 375 Days, 20 hours, 15 minutes, 10 seconds into the mission.

Now that we are safely docked with the ISS, a wide range of tests will be performed on all the systems and subsystems of the SSTV-01. We will also get a 2nd XR5 docked with us as well as various replacements and supplies...

T+ 365 Days Engineering Log

Today is 1 Year since the start of SSTV-01 Mission #1. Currently we are performing an average of 12 shaping burns per day to reduce the total delta V of our EOI burn in 10 days time. Several of the EHE's have shown some effects to the number of starts and stops that they have been asked to perform, but all are operating within their normal parameters at this time.

All boards are green going into year 2 of the mission.

Remaining mission timeline is as follows:
  • T+375

T+ 360 Days Engineering Log

The first 14 shaping burns were performed today without any issued with the EHEs. Several loose items rattled around inside of 1 of the maintenance modules which caused some damage to fixtures inside the module, but no hull penetration occurred.

It is expected that we will perform 10-16 shaping burns of 2 to 5 minutes each over the next 15 days until our EOI burn on T+375 Days in the mission.

All boards are green at this time.

Remaining mission timeline...

T+ 351 Days Engineering Log

No engineering issued have come up since the last log entry. Return cruise mode has been very uneventful. At T+ 350 days, MCC #6 was performed exactly as planned and now a complicated set of shaping burns will begin to reduce the burn time for our initial earth orbit insertion (EOI) burn.

Starting on T+ 360 a series of <5 minute burns will be performed. After each burn, the resulting approach orbit will be analyzed and the next burn will be calculated. The goal is to perform as...
