Ephemeris file issue?

Has there been a more permanent solution to the planetary ephemeris issue described here?

When does the updated ephemeris file at end? I want to proactively upgrade our OCSSW installations before it runs out and causes an outage.

Thank you!

The solution can be permanent, as the ephemeris made available goes until after the spacecraft would naturally deorbit :wink:

However, the next release of SeaDAS will include an updated SDPTK library, which includes the ephtobin code with the fix to generate a binary version of the ephemeris that also will work well into the future.  (the same code I modified similarly to generate the version we made available).
