SWAP and LYRA data gaps

On Friday December 8, an unexpected reboot of the PROBA2 spacecraft occurred. This caused the LYRA and SWAP instruments to turn off, leading to a gap in their data flow.

The LYRA operations were restarted successfully on the next day and the instrument has been delivering measurements since 18:53 UT on December 9. 

For SWAP the initial restart was unsuccessful as the instrument settings after the reboot were different from what was expected. Unfortunately, this restart failed just before the weekend and no PROBA2 operations are foreseen outside of working hours. SWAP regular imaging was resumed on December 11 around 10:20 UT.
