WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS FOR WEEK ENDING 20 November 1998:
Dr. Doron Bardas and Art Nakashima held the first of two probe-to-SIA Integration and Test Readiness Reviews (I&TRR). Many people, many pieces of flight hardware, various ground support equipment, and the associated assembly procedures and QA documentation will be required to carry out the probe/SIA integration. In addition, a significant amount of coordination and planning will be required to allow the process to move smoothly. This I & TRR helped prepare and organize GP-B to carry out this complex operation.
The Relativity Mission Spacecraft Data Management System Interface Unit (IU) and Command Telemetry Unit (CTU) are being moved from B/251 to B/205 for installation on the flight vehicle. This represents the end of successful testing of the IU and CTU with the flight Solid State Recorder in the Integrated Test Facility.
