Purpose: This proposal is designed to permit the conservative, safe, and orderly recovery of the COS/FUV detector after an anomalous HV shutdown.

Description: Anomalous shutdowns can occur because of bright object violations, which trigger the Count Rate Protection Monitor or the Global Software Monitor. Anomalous shutdowns can also occur because of hardware anomalies or failures. The cause of the shutdown should be thoroughly investigated and understood prior to recovery. Wait intervals are required after each test for data analysis. COS event Flag 3 is used to prevent inadvertent FUV usage.

The recovery procedure is divided into two distinct parts with Part 1 consisting of a slow HV ramp-up with diagnostics and darks, followed by a ramp-down, HV off, and setting of event Flag 3. Time is allotted for cognitive UC Berkeley, COS Instrument Scientist, and engineering to examine data dumps, science exposures, and housekeeping telemetry. If all is well, the go-ahead will be given to clear Flag 3 and proceed with the second HV ramp-up.

Part 2 consists of a normal ramp-up with diagnostics and darks, followed by a ramp-down, HV off, and setting Flag 3. Again, UC Berkeley, COS Instrument Scientist, and engineering will examine data dumps, science exposures, and housekeeping telemetry. If all is well, the go-ahead will be given to clear Flag 3 and precede with normal FUV science programs.

Prior to the beginning of Visit 1, Flag 3 must be cleared by the ground via real-time commanding. This can be done as soon as the anomalous HV shutdown is understood and the go-ahead is given to proceed with the recovery. This is based on cycle 17, proposal 11893.

An outline of the activities follows. The numbers in parentheses correspond to the visit numbers.

 (1) Uninhibit the DCE.(set dce_FUVInhibitMode = FALSE and do other CS 
     cleanup), take diagnostic data (DCE RAM dump), and transition the 
     detector from Boot to Operate. (Boot will be the state of the detector 
     after being Inhibited.) Special commanding is used to uninhibit the DCE 
     and to dump the DCE RAM. Regular recon commanding is used for the Boot 
     to Operate transition.

 (2) Turn on the FUV HV and ramp to HVLOW. Special commanding will be used to 
     execute the FUV Operate to HVLOW recon. Diagnostics are taken (DCE RAM 
     dumps) after each transition.

 (3) Take a 1-hour dark exposure followed by diagnostics (DCE RAM dump).

 (4) Ramp the HV from HVLOW to HVNOM for each segment (169,167) during a 
     1080.0 second DARK exposure. Take diagnostics (DCE RAM dumps) after.

 (5) Take a 2nd 1-hour dark exposure followed by diagnostics (DCE RAM 
     dump).

 (6) Ramp the HV down, turn it off, and set Flag 3.

At this point, UC Berkeley, COS Instrument Scientist, and engineering will examine data dumps, science exposures, and housekeeping telemetry. If all is well, this time the go-ahead will be given to proceed with the Part 2. A requirement is that diagnostic and science data be fast-tracked to the Science Team.


 (11) Take diagnostics  (DCE RAM dumps). The ground must clear Flag 3 before 
     the next step.
of Visit 12.

 (12) Turn-on the HV and ramp to HVLOW with diagnostics (DCE RAM dumps).

 (13) Take a 1-hour dark exposure followed by diagnostics (DCE RAM dump).

 (14) Ramp the HV from HVLOW to HVNOM (nominal value for each segment 
     169,167) during a 1000.0 second DARK exposure. Take diagnostics (DCE RAM 
     dumps) after.

 (15) Take a 2nd 1-hour dark exposure followed by diagnostics (DCE RAM dump).

 (16) Ramp the HV down, turn it off, and set Flag 3.

UC Berkeley, COS Instrument Scientist, and engineering will again examine data dumps, science exposures, and housekeeping telemetry. If all is well, this time the go-ahead will be given to clear Flag 3 and proceed with normal FUV science. It is requested that diagnostic and science data be fast-tracked to the Science Team. No FUV activities be scheduled within 48 hours after the completion of Visit 16 to allow for data analysis.

Observation summary: The recovery procedure is divided into two distinct parts with Part 1 consisting of a slow HV ramp-up with diagnostics and darks, followed by a ramp-down, HV off, and setting of event Flag 3. Cognitive UC Berkeley, COS Instrument Scientist, and engineering will examine data dumps, science exposures, and housekeeping telemetry.

    It is assumed that this will be the first FUV activity on an SMS and that 
      the CS is in Operate state. Therefore, the starting FUV state is set to 
      HVLOW, which is the nominal SMS boundary state.
    Unhibit the DCE for commanding by setting dce_FUVInhibitMode == FALSE in

# Special needs of this proposal?
This proposal is run to reactivate the COS FUV following an anomalous shutdown.

Scheduling: As needed

Prerequisites: (e.g., specific SMOV proposal; command development?)

PDB update?               (Specify table name if known e.g. SIAF).
On-board table update?    (Specify table name if known e.g. CCDBadPixelTable)

# Special Requirements:
Real time?                Y
Special commanding?       Y
Quick Data turnaround?    Y (time-tags and engineering telemetry)
Special timing required?  N
Other?                    N
Describe (& justify) special requirements: The engineering telemetry for each step is required to evaluate the safety for proceeding.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Analysis Plan per Anomalous Shutdown

Expected FTE weeks for analysis:                                0.4
Required turnaround on analysis (weeks):                        0.2 per test
Data volume (Mb needed for analysis):                           n/a
Special software needed for analysis? (Describe):               None

Description of analysis Plans: (1-2 paragraphs)

Analysis is carried out by the cognitive UC Berkeley, COS Instrument Scientist, and engineers within 24 hours of each test to examine data dumps, science exposures, and engineering telemetry. The darks and time-tag images are examined for unusual spatial or temporal features.The engineering telemetry data is examined (voltages, currents, temperatures, relay position, status, and event counts) for agreement with predicted values from previous ground and on-orbit tests or model-predicted values.
