ISS Daily Summary Report – 03/16/16

Ocular Health (OH), Fundoscope: Kopra and Peake continued with OH and Fundoscope operations which are ongoing this week.


Dose Tracker:  Kopra and Peake completed entries for medication tracking early this morning.  This investigation documents the medication usage of crew members before and during their missions by capturing data regarding medication use during spaceflight, including side effect qualities, frequencies and severities. The data is expected to either support or counter anecdotal evidence of medication ineffectiveness during flight and unusual side effects experienced during flight. It is also expected that specific, near-real-time questioning about symptom relief and side effects will provide the data required to establish whether spaceflight-associated alterations in pharmacokinetics (PK) or pharmacodynamics (PD) is occurring during missions.


OA-6 Preparations: Kopra and Peake completed another session of Robotics On-Board Trainer (RoBOT) On-Board Training (OBT) in preparation for OA-6 arrival. The procedure included a 30 meter approach, two Capture Point hold runs and 2 meter runs. Following RoBOT training Peake utilized the Auto Run Tool to continue practicing 2 meter and 30 meter approach runs. Also in preparation for OA-6, the crew unlatched the Node 1 Nadir hatch.


Air Quality Monitor (AQM) Sieve Cartridge Troubleshooting: On February 3, during activation and checkout of AQM #1005 the crew received a “Not Ready” status. It was suspected that the issue is with a sieve cartridge. Kopra removed the old cartridges from AQM #1005 and replaced it with new ones to confirm whether the issue was due to a bad cartridge or the unit itself.  Initial results of ground commanding indicate that the cause was a bad cartridge and is now resolved.


Mobile Servicing System (MSS) Operations: On October 8, 2015, during Robotics Refueling Mission (RRM) operations, invalid joint position and Resolver-to-Digital (RDC) Built-In-Test (BIT) errors were seen. Last evening, Robotics Ground Controllers performed Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) Arm2 Shoulder Yaw (SY) joint characterization.  The characterization was completed with no test failures and no recurrence of the anomaly.  Data collected will be analyzed to help characterize the original anomaly.
