Deploy RPI radial antenna to 120 m on day 16. Conduct MENA LV SFF and open MENA shutters.
Spin up to 1.4 RPM on days 17 through 20.
Deploy RPI radial antenna to 160 m on day 20.
Spin up to 0.96 RPM on days 21 through 24. Ramp EUV HV to Sun-Safe. Ramp FUV to Science Level.
Deploy RPI radial antenna to 210 m on day 24.
Spin up to 0.75 on days 25 through 33. Open HENA Shutter.
Deploy RPI radial antennae to 250 m on day 35. Deploy RPI axial antennae.
Ramp-up high voltage on Science Instruments on days 36 through 39.
