Excerpts from Weekly Report

Friday | Oct. 26, 2001
Post-shipment inspection of the Space Support Equipment (SSE) at KSC did not reveal any anomalies for the flight hardware. The Flight Support System (FSS) shipping container left KSC and arrived at GSFC.

Multi-Use Lightweight Equipment (MULE) carrier Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) certification was successfully completed at KSC.

SSE mechanical integration activities have started. The SAC keel has been installed, RAC keel lockout plates were removed and structural bolts installed, and the Large Orbital Replacement Unit (ORU) Protective Enclosure (LOPE) and Small OPE (SOPE) simulators were installed on the MULE.

Characterization tests of the FSS Pivoter were run. The FSS Pivoter and BAPS offload device were reintegrated onto the FSS, which is in the Space Environmental Simulation (SES) chamber.

The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) was shipped back to Ball, to perform the final Refractive Aberrated Simulator/Hubble Opto-Mechanics Simulator (RAS/HOMS) alignment verification.
