Project status and future plans for launch campaign

F.Vandenbussche presented the status of the project and explained the concerns about the reaction wheels and the thrusters (see annex 3). On Thursday afternoon, he gave a delta-report on the outcome of the Stevenhage meeting which took place the day before. RW 2 and 4 were opened the week before. The lubrification was found ``a bit dry''. The PTT lifetest wheel has also been opened. Its lubrification is good, no sign of a problem visible, cage also o.k.. This lifetest wheel is fully representative for the SOHO wheels. It run 2 1/2 years at constant speed.

After some discussion, the SWT agreed on a resolution on the reaction wheel repair (see Sect.1).

The PIs requested that the KSC schedule also be sent by e-mail.
