Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 3 June 2016 9.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Jun 1 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

Of note this week was the release on May 31 of CalDB version 4.7.2. This upgrade includes two changes that affect only GRADED CC-mode observations taken since 2009-11-01T00:00:00 (UTC). The chages are a redaction of ACIS GRADE file version N0005 and the alteration of ACIS modified QE for CC-mode so that it is selected for ALL GRADED CC-mode data throughout the mission. For details see: http://cxc.harvard.edu/caldb/downloads/Release_notes/CALDB_v4.7.2.html

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below
