Mars Surveyor 98 Project Manager
Orbiter and lander integration and test activities are proceeding on schedule with no significant problems. The lander component deck was inserted into the lander body on 1/23. The Mars Volatile and Climate Surveyor (MVACS) payload integration on the lander spacecraft is in progress. The flight Robotic Arm (RA), Meteorology package (MET), and Surface Stereo Imager (SSI) are installed on the lander deck and functional tests are in progress. The orbiter Command and Data Handling (C&DH) subsystem and Power Distribution and Drive Unit (PDDU) were upgraded to flight status (i.e., upgrade of ATLO Test Unit cards with flight parts) and will be re-installed on the orbiter on 2/2.
