DUSTCON 1 When MER Power Team Lead Jennifer Herman suggested that the team having a readiness rating scale kind of like the U.S. military’s DEFCON, JPL Operations Engineer Brian Barker got creative and designed a graphic that turned up in Herman’s workspace the next day. “DUSTCON 1 is not an official designation,” noted MER Power Lead Jennifer Herman, of JPL. “It’s just something that a few of us on the operations team made up for fun and inspiration, to remind ourselves to stay ready,” she said. “Our tactical readiness is on high alert.” JPL-Caltech, B.
