STARDUST Status Report

January 21, 2000

The first 2 parts of the 3 part Deep Space Maneuver-1 (DSM-1), to target the STARDUST spacecraft for an Earth gravity assist next year, have been successfully completed. The Flight Team at Lockheed Martin has verified that the spacecraft performance was even better than predicted and that these two maneuvers had less than 1-sigma execution errors. JPL Navigation is making detailed assessments of these maneuvers in preparation for the third and final maneuver to complete DSM-1 this weekend.
