Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 4 August 2017 9.00am EDT

During the last week Chandra completed the observing schedule as planned.

A real-time procedure was executed on Aug 1 to swap the prime solid-state recorder (SSR) from the A-side to the B-side. This swap concludes a six-month interval of health and trending data collection on SSR-A. A second real-time procedure was executed on Aug 2 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of V404 Cygni coordinated with VLA, an observation of GRS 1915+105 coordinated with NuSTAR, ATCA, and VLT, an observation of GRB 161219B, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on May 8, and an observation of S255IR NIRS 3, which is a follow-up to a Target of Opportunity accepted on Dec 9.
