TBD 1998 - OBE xxx uploaded
OBE Version xxx:
Fixed bug in Seq_PW iteration (first PW in second iteration was missed)
Fixed bug when scheduling from LOCS during image compression caused LP to be repeated
Improved Schedule Q flush - flushes LP parameters and scheduling parameters
Added Repeat count to OBE activity buffer so repeated messages will not swamp buffer
Added Reorder Wait Q to op_process_dump_memory
Added extended header "pool"
Added Summing buffer reserved headers
29 Mar 2000 - Found misdefined ext_hdr in nrl_extern.inc (increased to 62 entries from 10)
OBE Version 225:
Fixes Take Normal LP invalid parameter 20 problem
OBE Version 224:
Fixes FP Msg 16 default values
OBE Version 223:
Fixes TM Buffer Size
OBE Version 222
Uploaded Jul 23, 1997
Booted approx noon EDT
OBE Version: 17 Jul 1997
New communications fix to disable TCE Status Request during ICE mech moves.
TCE gets a OBE Busy message during the mech move. This seems to solve the
schedule Q hang ups.
Added a delay to the cal lamp op. The camera readout will delay camera readout
for the long pulse period for shutter lamp cal exposures. This will give time
for the lamp to dim before camera readout.
Possible fix in seq pw of polarizer wheel hang. Removed double move of pw
for first polarizer and reversed order of filter and polarizer wheel moves.
Increased Maximum number of SCB's to 1000
Allowed unpacking of bitpacked commands coming from planning tool
OBE Version: 6 May 1997
Changed defaults for dpt and wl_exp_table upon boot.
Expanded wl_exp_table to 40.
Added num_wl_steps to op_wobble_outside
Added wl_start_index to op_build_line_scan and op_wobble_outside
Expanded Science TM buffer from 1069256 words to 1603884 words (50% increase).
Added HCompress with scale factors 0, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 to image processing options.
Hcompress source code available for trial at anon ftp maple /pub/wang as
nrlhc.tar and nrlhd.tar
FP Check and Correct Recovery is in progress.
Added Extended headers
- Information that depends on image processing is added to the header.
- Currently 9 types - FP, Radial Spoke, II Bright, II Delta, ROI Threshold,
Sum Buffer 0, Sum Buffer1, Transient Threshold, Sum Buffer Difference
Added Door Position to Image Headers - Upload Door Position to OBE
New Science Header IDS is at anon ftp on maple /pub/lasco/ids
Reinitialized SignFlag, nshift, SqrtFlag for each image.
Allowed putting of "Reference Images" into summing buffers
OBE Size has grown to 125k from 90k -> longer to upload
New versions of LADS, LOCS, read_sci_header are ready.
