Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 19 March 2010 9.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Mar 12 to re-initialize the flight software Thruster Command Processing subfunction to clear a benign overflow condition.

Of note this week the Chandra Cycle 12 proposal deadline was March 18 at 6pm EDT. The proposal submission process proceeded smoothly.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of LHS 3003 coordinated with HST.
