Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 18 January 2013 9.00am EST

During the last two weeks Chandra completed the observing schedule as planned.

A real-time procedure was executed on Jan 11 to disable the primary heater on the Integral Propulsion System (IPS) fuel tank. Temporarily disabling the IPS tank primary heater is the first in a series of steps required to determine the viability of using the on-board computer to control the IPS tank temperature.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below
