The problem has been addressed in HCSS 14.0 and the tests carried out with several observations, including pointing calibration targets, indicate that the problem has been correctly fixed. However, large offsets have been reported on individual observations (e.g. obsid 1342183075 in OD 112) so in case that you find any problem with the astrometry of your observation, please contact the HSC Helpdesk.

The problem was been addressed in HCSS 14.0 . The tests performed indicated that the STR misalignment was not properly handled in early ODs (<= 113) and has been fixed in HCSS 14.1. (see SPR HCSS-20990). However, some issues still exist for a small set of SPIRE parallel observations in OD 111 (investigation on-going). In case that you find any problem with the astrometry of your observation, please contact the HSC Helpdesk.

  1. Switch from the main star-tracker (STR1) to the backup unit (STR2) either driven by the autonomous Failure Detection, Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) or commanded from ground for testing and calibrating the backup unit. This produces an offset of some 15 arcsec between the desired (nominal) and actually commanded coordinates.
  2. Incorrect upload of the Spacecraft Velocity Vector (SVV) to the star-tracker (STR) resulting in a lack of light aberration correction in the coordinates of the STR guide stars. This produces a variable error in the range 0 - 20 arcsec between the desired (nominal) and actually commanded coordinates.

NEW In HCSS 13.0, the auxiliary processor that creates the pointing product was updated to automatically check for those events and apply the corrections whenever appropriate. However, this was only implemented for the "simple-corrected" attitude (column simpleCorrFilterQuat) and not for the "gyro-propagated" one (column filterQuat). Hence, the astrometry of the products retrieved from the archive (processed with the gyro-propagated attitude) are still affected by the problems outlined above. If you want to reprocess the data by your own, you will need to overwrite the column filterQuat of the pointing product with the simpleCorrFilterQuat and then launch the pipeline processing ensuring that you use the new pointing product. However, in case of doubt of if you have observations in one of the ODs referred below and processed with SPG < 13.0, please contact the HSC Helpdesk for more information and support.

While a definitive fix for this problem is being implemented (automatically checking for such events and applying the required corrections upon creation of the pointing product), currently whenever a bulk reprocessing is performed, the corrections get lost. Several scripts developed at HSC can provide a correct pointing but require manual intervention.

The pointing data of several ODs are affected by offsets due to two causes:

  1. Switch from the main star-tracker (STR1) to the backup unit (STR2) either driven by the autonomous Failure Detection, Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) or commanded from ground for testing and calibrating the backup unit. This produces an offset of some 15 arcsec between the desired (nominal) and actually commanded coordinates.
