Maintenance and Testing of the SSTV-01 has been completed with no flags to worry about. The EHE's will need a complete teardown and overhaul after this mission is over, which is fine since the next solar system mission will be the 100 day transit from the Earth-Moon system to Pluto using the SSTV-02.

Titan Station construction is well underway with no issues currently that would hold up IOC by T+290 days. Refueling from Titan's icy moons is well under way and all boards are green at this time.

The remaining milestones for this mission:
  • T+290 Days Titan Station at Initial Operational Capacity (IOC)
  • T+291 Days refueling complete
  • T+295 Days Departure from Titan Station
  • T+296 Days TEI
  • T+315 Days MCC #7
  • T+350 Days MCC #8
  • T+375 Days MCC #9
  • T+380 Days Begin Earth-Moon system phasing burns
  • T+392 Days Closest approach to Earth, Earth-Moon system capture burn
  • T+395 Days Arrival at Lunar Station and end of SSTV-01 Mission #2

    100 days from the Moon to Pluto? How fast will you be going?

    I calculated that the delta V of the main Trans Pluto Injection burn to be around 350,000 m/s. Since the SSTV has over 20,000,000 m/s of delta V when fully fueled, this should not be a problem. Limited to 3 G's however will make this burn last a good long time.
