The COS FUV Special Recovery activities (proposal 12810 visits 16 - 17) successfully completed 
today without incident.  The FUV was ramped to the 2nd HV plateau (-5010V/-4963V (160/157)) similar 
to visit 10; however  this time the QE grid was on, no elevated counts or HV current transients 
were observed in the engineering telemetry during or after the ramp.  The STScI and MOSES2 
Engineering Teams have examined the relevant telemetry and confirmed all voltages, currents and 
temperatures were as expected. The voltage and current monitors matched the signatures seen in 
SMOV.  The COS Science Team at STScI has examined the science data and DCE memory dumps and 
everything is nominal.  No HV current transients or unexpected elevated count rates were observed 
in the DCE memory dumps. The science data consisted of 2 sets of dark and wavecal exposures. The 
exposures were collected immediately after ramping to HVNom (160/157) and an hour later at the same 
HV level. Comparisons with SMOV data indicates comparable behavior when the aging of the detector 
and temporal fluctuations are considered.  The Engineering and Science Teams have given a "Go" to 
proceed with visit 18 and 19. Visits 18 and 19 are scheduled for Tuesday June 5 (DOY 157).  The COS 
event flag 3 was cleared @156/18:02 via OR 19263  -jb
