Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 7 August 2009 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to use attitudes that would keep the MUPS tank temperature near its minimum value as a precaution against exacerbating a potential leak.

A real-time procedure was completed on Aug 3 to update the on-board ephemeris. A second real-time procedure was executed on Aug 5 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below
