WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS FOR WEEK ENDING 18 December 1998:
The DPA team under Paul Ehrensberger's direction has completed the construction of the first detector mount assembly including the flight detector circuit. One additional mount assembly is nearing completion and two other detector mount assemblies (minus the detector circuit) are now complete. Once these four detector mount assemblies are completed we will assemble the two flight DPAs and begin acceptance testing.
