Apr. 24, 2013 • All spacecraft and instrument systems continue to perform normally. LDCM continues to collect more than 400 scenes per day on the Worldwide Reference System-2 track. While waiting for the validation and delivery of on-orbit calibration information that ensures the instruments are returning good data, the Data Processing and Archive System at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center is being tested to demonstrate the ability to process this flow of data. During this period, routine calibrations have continued along with OLI and TIRS imaging. The satellite completed its 1,000th orbit on April 21, 2013.
