Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 7 February 2003 8.00am EST

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

Chandra passed through the fourth, fifth and sixth eclipses of the Spring 2003 season on 31 Jan, 3 and 5 of Feb with nominal power and thermal performance. Real-time procedures were run following each eclipse to disable the Momentum Unload subfunction in the flight software to ensure momentum dumps remain under manual control.

The observing schedule for next week is shown below.

F16090-0139 ACIS-S Feb 9 SN2003L ACIS-S FIRST J114047+462204 ACIS-S Feb 10 2MASS104044+593409 ACIS-S Radiation Belts KS 1731-260 ACIS-S Feb 11 Markarian 231 ACIS-S PSR J2021+3651 (2 obs) ACIS-S Feb 12 CYG X-3 HRC-I NGC 660 ACIS-S NGC1404 ACIS-S Radiation Belts Feb 13 NGC 4772 ACIS-S NGC4666 ACIS-S NGC4636 (2 obs) ACIS-I Feb 14 NGC3125 ACIS-S Feb 15 Radiation Belts Feb 16 NGC2992 ACIS-S


All spacecraft subsystems, with the exception of MUPS thruster A-1 as noted above, continued to operate nominally.
