WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS FOR WEEK ENDING 3 AUGUST 2001:
PAYLOAD TEST TEAM SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETES PAYLOAD LEVEL GYROSCOPE TESTING
The payload test team has completed gyroscope testing at the payload level. We believe that these four gyroscopes meet all on-orbit requirements. The team has also been working on resolving a number of GSE issues that support the completion of thermal verifications at the payload level. These verifications involve the use of the various temperature controllers in the payload.
