Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 19 September 2008 8.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was completed on Sept 15 to update the on-board Ephemeris.

On Sept 17 a procedure was performed from the daily loads to lower the ACIS focal-plane temperature set-point during an extended HRC observation; the set-point was returned to its nominal value prior to the subsequent ACIS observation. The goal of this procedure was to determine the margin available for control of the ACIS focal-plane temperature.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below.

GRB080307 ACIS-S Sep 22 XTEJ1716-389 ACIS-I H2356-309 HRC-S/LETG RXCJ0449.9-4440 ACIS-I Sep 23 Radiation Belts AEGIS-2 ACIS-I Sep 24 GPS1822-131 HRC-I Sep 25 H2356-309 HRC-S/LETG AXJ181917-1548 HRC-I SGR0501+4516 HRC-I AEGIS-2 ACIS-I Radiation Belts Sep 26 AEGIS-2 ACIS-I Sep 27 RXSJ180326.2 HRC-I H2356-309 HRC-S/LETG EXO1742-326 HRC-I Sep 28 AEGIS-2 ACIS-I


All spacecraft subsystems continued to support nominal operations.
