[Jason-2] is in safe hold mode since December 26th at 01:33:54UTC

Category: Operational news

The Jason-2 spacecraft entered safe mode on Wednesday, December 26th 2018 at @01:33:54UTC, immediately interrupting its measurements.

The satellite is currently in a safe and stable Sun-pointing configuration. The analysis of the telemetry shows that the safe hold mode is consecutive to a gyro #1 disjunction. 
Those anomalies are well known. Recovery operations will start after Christmas holidays period.

Very best regards 

Merry Christmas and happy New Year 2019

Nadège Quéruel (SALP on call) on behalf of Christophe Marechal, CNES Jason 2 project manager.
