Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 19 October 2001 12.00pm EDT

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

A real-time procedure was completed on Oct 16 that verified the CPE warm start count has remained unchanged at 1 since Mar 2. A second procedure was completed on Oct 18 to dump and verify values of the gyroscope scale factors and related variables. The dump and verification was done in preparation for an update to the scale factors.

The schedule of observations for the coming week is shown below.
