ISEE-3 Status Report 23 June 2014: DSN Ranging & Spin Up Update, ISEE-3 Reboot Project
“The DSN pass last week on 18 June that went from 1:45 to 2:45 Pacific Daylight time was not a success. Here is a recap of the pass activity. … Friday June 20th we were going to do the propulsion system test and spin up maneuver. However, one of our pass/fail criterion was real time telemetry and reliable commanding. Neither of these criterion were met and thus we cancelled that activity early in the pass.”
