On the subsystems side, the TC link timeout was returned to its normal value of 9 days on 12 January. The TM mode was temporarily changed to “bi-weekly” between 12 and 19 January, to cope with possible reduction of coverage when new Norcia was supporting Mars Express contingency operations.
The payload was inactive in the reporting period, with the exception of SREM measuring radiation in the background.
A total of 3 New Norcia passes were taken over the reporting period.
