Status of the EUVE Science Payload
The EUVE science payload is being prepared to be delivered to the
Explorer  Platform  for integrated tests at the end of September.
One of the scanner pressure relief valves is leaking,  and  plans
are being made to replace it.

The major activities over the last month have been simulations of
mission  operations and  the data analysis functions to check out
the software and management systems.   Initial  analysis  of  the
simulation  results is encouraging.  In  particular the data pro-
cessing pipeline is meeting its processing time requirements.

Status of the EUVE Spacecraft
The launch date is December 12, 1991. The Explorer  Platform  has
begun  its  thermal vacuum testing. The critical path remains the
deployable antenna which will be reworked prior to launch.

EUVE Guest Observer Program
The NASA NRA issuance has beed moved from September 15,  1991  to
October 15, 1991.
