Gyroless Mode of Operation

J.-P. Olive and H. Schweizer described the principles behind the new Experiment Offpointing flag, the operation of the new Coarse Roll Pointing mode, and the automatic switch-over of guide stars. The commissioning tests of the Coarse Roll Pointing mode indicates that the spacecraft can safely stay for several days in this mode (annex 4).

J.-P. Olive then presented the first plans for the Leonids (annex 5). It was agreed to move the presentation by J. Rowe on the Leonids to this section of the meeting.
