Recent Activities

Instrument environmental testing and calibration and spacecraft fabrication activities are progressing well, and the project is on schedule for a January 2000 launch. We are holding a two-month mission reserve.

Pre-ship reviews were held for EUV, FUV, and HENA in December. Pre-ship reviews for MENA, RPI, and the CIDP will be held in the first half of January. The spacecraft pre-ship review will be held on January 20th, while the LENA pre-ship review will be held later in January or in early February.

The picture below shows the HENA instrument during its delivery to SwRI on December 28, 1998. Integration activities for HENA are scheduled to be completed by January 1. Steve Jaskulek, Charles Schlemm, and John Hayes delivered HENA and are now performing instrument checkout.

The next theory/modeling and data meeting will be held at GSFC, Bldg. 26, Room 105 from 8:30 AM on February 2nd until noon on February 3rd 1999. Jim Green and Rick Burley are the GSFC contacts for the meeting. Dennis Gallagher is responsible for the agenda. Please inform Jim or Rick of your attendance so they can arrange for badges and let Dennis know if you have any suggestions for the agenda.

Manuscripts for the special issue of Space Science Reviews and the simultaneously published hard-cover monograph on the IMAGE mission are due to be submitted to Jim Burch at SwRI in April 1999. The on-time submission of all manuscripts will assure publication in November 1999.

The picture below shows the planned design for an IMAGE lapel pin, which will be 7/8 in. in width and should be available within a month or so. Wear it proudly.
