3. Ground Support / Contact Summary              (submitted by D. McCabe)

   Fourteen ground station contacts were performed over the past week. Data was from the
   contact at AGO 33361 was lost. The station did not deliver the housekeeping nor science files
   to the MOC, and they were not resent before being deleted.

6. Data Processing Summary
TIM (submitted by Doug Lindholm, 20 March 2009)
   • Status
         o Version 9 routine processing is ongoing.
         o Version 9 TSI data are available on LISIRD, the SORCE web site, and the GES
             DISC with the new LASP ASCII file format.
   • Work in progress
         o Evaluating tasks for version 10 reprocessing.
         o Code modifications (generalizations) to support Glory TIM data processing.
   • Future Plans
         o Field of view analysis and pointing correction.


SOLSTICE (submitted by Doug Lindholm, 20 March 2009)
     Status
        o Most calibration updates are complete for version 10 reprocessing.
        o Routine data processing is producing version 9 level 3 FUV and MUV
            SOLSTICE data products. These are available on the SORCE web site and
            LISIRD.
        o MgII index is being produced routinely and is available on the SORCE web site.
  • Work in Progress
        o Preparations for Version 10 reprocessing.
        o Filter experiment analysis to Improve dead time correction and filter
            transmission.
  • Future Plans
        o Analysis of instrument misalignment calibration.
        o Analysis of level 3 uncertainties.
        o Improved Jan 2006 slit anomaly correction.
        o Improvement of field of view maps.

SIM (submitted by Doug Lindholm, 20 March 2009)
   • Status
        o Testing of version 17 reprocessing with improved corrections after the May 2007
             OBC anomaly.
        o The routine release of version 16 data products after the January 2009 safe-hold
             events has been put on hold. The data require a wavelength shift correction.
        o The level 3 data products are available on the SORCE web site and LISIRD.
   • Work in Progress
                                                                                     Page 6 of 7
          o Development of a wavelength shift correction.
          o Calibration to improve the quality of early mission data.
          o Testing of new SIM exposure time algorithm.
          o Reviewing the phase detected data number server
   •   Future Plans
          o Processing of SIM B.

XPS (submitted by Brian Templeman, 20 March 2009)
  • Version 9 XPS data are being routinely reprocessed and released.
  • The safe-hold events in January did not appear to affect data quality.
  • SORCE XPS Data Processing Statistics for 2009/066 to 2009/072:
             Total level 1b Observations Processed:    10741
