SIGNIFICANT EVENTS:
A tabletop briefing to update was held on Tuesday November 18 to review plans for the update of the 
TDRS element for use during the EFT-1 launch and authority to proceed was received.  The activities 
will proceed throughout the installation period as detailed in the briefing package. Ops Request 
19704-1 – “TDRS 150 Orbital Element Update” and GSCA #2538-0 – “TDRS Usage File Update 
for TDRS-150” detail the steps that will be taken for the installation. An additional TDRS 
tabletop Ops briefing will be held in December to detail the steps to be taken after EFT-1 launch. 

Ops Request 19704-1 to uplink TDRS-150 (F-5) orbital elements into HST486 slot A was successfully 
executed from 323/15:02 – 15:09z.  A 486 memory dump of table 224 (TDRS Elements table) was 
performed and the dump was verified by 486 FSW.  TDRS-150 elements were uplinked to provide 
additional scheduling resources for HST during the Exploration Flight Test -1 (EFT-1) mission 
scheduled to launch on December 4th at 1205z.  TDRS resources will be very limited during the EFT-1 
launch window and flight period, which could be up to a maximum of approximately 8.7 hours 
beginning at T-30 minutes

Ops Request 19705 was successfully completed approximately ~323/16:53 to dump the first 6 banks of 
NSSC-1 memory . This periodic memory dump will be used to compile a database of nominal NSSC-1 
states for Payload FSW record keeping and analysis.

Both SAS1 and ALT1 have been checked out as being back in primary status.
