So Juno approaches seeking her gravity assist. During the course of the maneuver several on-board systems shall be powered up - in all probability they are nominal, having already been checked-out after launch.
Assuming, say, some new algorithm may have been developed, or some instrument may be made more efficient by a code update, Juno's mission control could opt to schedule such software update during the course of the maneuver.
- Are any software updates scheduled for Juno during the maneuver (either before or after perigee)?
- What is the process of performing an instruction update on spacecraft instruments?
