LDEX typically operated in the ram attitude and one of the most common types of NMS observations was performed in ram attitude, so these activities could coincide with tracking.
Due to power limitations and attitude conflicts, NMS and UVS were never operated simultaneously, but LDEX could operate at the same time as either NMS or UVS, due to its very low power consumption and its ability to be operated in almost any attitude.
During the science phase, the LDEX instrument plan was built differently than for NMS and UVS.
