EQS : Routine Operations
After some transition phase, Eq-S operations now routinely cycles between four different types of data recording schemes, as illustrated in the graph. Data recording can be adjusted to accommodate conjunctions with other missions or ground observatories. The light lines indicate recording with low-rate TM (32 kbps) while the heavy lines indicate high-rate recording (132 kbps). Data are dumped to the Weilheim ground station inbetween these passes at 262 kbps and are transmitted to MPE via leased lines for preliminary analysis. Final data are shipped to MPE on CD-ROMs.
