Spacecraft TimeTelemetry or onboard communication
29 July 1998 17:45:55 GMTThe Remote Agent Experiment is up and running! Setting Remote Agent clock to 21 May 1999 14:48:53 GMT.
21 May 1999 14:49:47 GMTThe spacecraft components are in the following states:
21 May 1999 14:50:09 GMTRotating the spacecraft: Point the spacecraft's +x axis at Earth, and the solar panels at the sun.
21 May 1999 15:07:57 GMTStarting a pre-programmed script that simulates failure of the LPE bus terminal to test RAX.
21 May 1999 15:07:58 GMTTurning Power Activation and Switching Module on.
21 May 1999 15:08:04 GMTNothing happened.
    21 May 1999 15:08:40 GMTSpontaneous spacecraft state change just detected:
    21 May 1999 15:08:40 GMTRAX is looking for a way to recover. The recovery will have achieve or maintain the following: - Make it so steering with thrusters is working okay. - Make it so ACS is steering with thrusters. - Make it so Low-Power Electronics subsystem is working okay.
    21 May 1999 15:08:40 GMTRAX has decided to reset Low-Power Electronics subsystem in an attempt to recover.
    21 May 1999 15:08:40 GMTResetting the bus terminal for Low-Power Electronics subsystem.
    21 May 1999 15:08:46 GMTCommand resulted in the following state change:
    21 May 1999 15:08:46 GMTThe LPE failure simulation is over.
    21 May 1999 15:37:57 GMT;; [:EXEC-ACT :INTERESTING 43645139.016] ;; Simulating NEB1 status throw failure ;;
    21 May 1999 15:38:09 GMT;; [:EXEC-ACT :INTERESTING 43645150.313] ;; End of NEB1 fault simulation. ;;

    21 May 1999 15:46:39 GMTThe Remote Agent is developing a plan to achieve specified mission goals, given the current state of the spacecraft.
    21 May 1999 15:58:04 GMTRAX has finished developing a plan for the next horizon.
    21 May 1999 17:11:45 GMTRAX has started to execute the plan.
    21 May 1999 17:13:55 GMTRotating the spacecraft: Point the ion engine thrust at ra 4.187, dec -0.359, x=-0.470, y=-0.810, z=-0.351, and the solar panels at the sun.
    21 May 1999 17:13:56 GMTSetting ion propulsion timer to 1.7 hours.
    21 May 1999 19:23:51 GMTThe Remote Agent is developing a plan to achieve specified mission goals, given the current state of the spacecraft.
    21 May 1999 19:31:53 GMTRAX has finished developing a plan for the next horizon.
    21 May 1999 20:43:56 GMTRotating the spacecraft: Point HGA at Earth, and the solar panels at the sun.
    21 May 1999 20:46:22 GMTStarting a pre-programmed script that simulates failure of a thruster valve to test RAX.
    21 May 1999 20:46:25 GMTSpontaneous spacecraft state changes just detected:
    • steering with thrusters is degraded but usable.
    • Earth standby capability is degraded but usable.
    • sun standby capability is degraded but usable.
    • X-thrusters-for-Y capability has failed and appears unrecoverable.
    • Z-thrusters-for-Y capability is degraded but usable.
    21 May 1999 20:46:25 GMTRAX is looking for a way to recover. The recovery will have achieve or maintain the following: - Make it so MICAS camera is powered on. - Make it so steering with thrusters is working okay. - Make it so ACS is steering with thrusters. - Make it so Low-Power Electronics subsystem is working okay.
    21 May 1999 20:46:26 GMTRAX has decided to command ACS to use its Z-thrusters-for-Y capability in an attempt to recover.
    21 May 1999 20:46:56 GMTRAX has finished executing the script that simulates the valve failure.
    21 May 1999 20:47:27 GMTCommand resulted in the following state changes:
    • Thruster steering is using Z-thrusters-for-Y (slow) mode.
    • steering with thrusters is working okay.
    • Earth standby capability is working okay.
    • sun standby capability is working okay.
