From ISS Daily Report for 03/06/2010:

Working in the new MRM-1, CDR Skvortsov activated and health-checked itís MPI Multifunctional Panel which holds the C&W (Caution & Warning) displays. [Besides a ďCurrent Station TimeĒ clock with alarm & stop watch functions, the panel has indicators for Fire, Toxic Atmosphere (ATM) & Pressure Drop/Leak (∆P/∆t) events plus object selection & active control (ASK) buttons.]

Later, Skvortsov & FE-3 Kornienko checked out & tested the STTS comm. channels in MRM-1, supported by ground specialist tagup via S-band.

Reboost:
A one-burn reboost of ISS is scheduled for Saturday (05/06) morning at 3:20 AM GMT using the SMís two main engines. Planned burn duration: 4 min 7 sec; delta-V: 4.3 m/s (14.1 ft/s). Expected mean altitude gain: 7.6 km (4.1 nmi). Purpose: set up orbital phasing for both Soyuz TMA-19/23S and Progress M-06M/38P launch/dock conditions.

The quality of the ISS Daily Reports has really gone downhill lately Ė I have to double-check everything before I post it to make sure it is correct (and 50% of the time, it isnít).

I donít know who writes these reports, but they evidently have very little understanding of even the basic structure of the ISS.

From ISS On-Orbit Status Report for 04/06/2010:

FE-2 Caldwell-Dyson had ~1h15m set aside for troubleshooting the OGS (Oxygen Generator System) pump ORU whose pressure sensor has failed. Its low delta-P indication across the pump ORU had shut down the OGA (Oxygen Generation Assembly) on 22/05. Today’s procedure was to verify that the OGS Process Controller is not the cause of the sensor failure. [Steps included opening the OGS Rack doors to access the ORU, connect the Multimeter voltage/current measurement instrument to take voltage readings from the Controller to the sensor (should be ~15 VDC), then cleaning up and closing out the worksite. Tracy measured a sensor excitation voltage of 15.08 VDC, i.e., within nominal range and indicative of a healthy Process Controller. Additional troubleshooting will be scheduled in the near future to either replace the pump ORU or to operate the OGA without the dP sensor.]

In preparation of the planned installation of the PDGF externally on the FGB during US EVA-15 by Caldwell-Dyson & Wheelock (currently scheduled for 08/07), Mikhail unstowed the Russian-built PDGF adapter (rama = frame) from Progress M-05M/37P, transferred it to the DC-1 "Pirs" module and installed a handrail on the adapter frame with six screw bolts and a screw sealant, Anaterm-1u (a special anaerobic compound). [The additional PDGF, the first on the RS (Russian Segment), will extend the "roving" range of the SSRMS which moves itself inch-worm like from PDGF to PDGF.]

Reboost:
A one-burn reboost of ISS is scheduled tomorrow morning at 3:20 AM GMT using the SM’s two main engines. Planned burn duration: 4 min 7 sec; delta-V: 4.3 m/s (14.1 ft/s). Expected mean altitude gain: 7.6 km (4.1 nmi). Purpose: set up orbital phasing for both Soyuz TMA-19/23S and Progress M-06M/38P launch/dock conditions.
