Welcome to the Payload Data Library!
The PDL 26.0 version has been released on 2/24/2021. Version 26.0 includes updates to C&DH, KuIP and Safety datasets.
Phase 2 of the PDL change request is complete! Included in this release are additions to the Command and Data Handling (C&DH) and Safety datasets. The C&DH dataset has a new DSCR report that allows CDH users to compare Sub Element Revisions of a Payload and shows whether data was inserted, modified, or deleted. In addition, the C&DH dataset Payload Data screen displays the ORBIT Payload/Investigation Name. PDL pulls Payload data from ORBIT daily which gives PDL the ability to map ORBIT Payloads to PDL Payloads. The ORBIT Payload/Investigation Name is displayed on both the Payload Data screen and report. The Safety dataset has an updated Dashboard that allows users to query ISS Hazard System (IHS) for Hazard Report and Hazard Control information and import selected IHS data into a PDL Safety Payload Acronym. Try the new features and call the Helpdesk if you have any problems or questions.
