|Abstract: ||During the launch of Mars Odyssey, ground data system (GDS) engineers experienced a glitch in the ground data system that caused us to re-evaluate how we looked at spacecraft telemetry, particularly during the spacecraft development period and for critical spacecraft events in flight. Spacecraft telemetry told the subsystem and instrument engineers about the health and status of the spacecraft, but there was surprisingly little information about how well the ground data system was doing in getting information from the spacecraft to the engineers.
The problem for the Mars Odyssey launch was with a single channel not updating as often as expected. Spacecraft engineers considered calling off the Launch but eventually decided that this particular channel did not provide information that was crucial for launch. It was only after the post launch acquisition of the Odyssey signal that ground data system engineers heard there had been a concern about the channel....|
