[KO-23] Status and Plan

This is KO-23 command groundstation.

[Current Status]
KO-23 is not usable due to
battery cell degradation as you know. Two or more cells
are suspected to have been dead.
We are operating KO-23 with minimum system
turned on. 
Attitude control has been lost for a few months.
Sudden power failures are being
experienced in about every two months.
The power required only for OBC186
is not secured and verified yet.

We will try to verify current power status during
September. After that, we can decide if we can
operate. In my personal view, recovery from
this kind of status is very difficult.
However, wish us a luck.
