Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 3 February 2017 9.00am EST

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to remove the grating from the observation of 4U 1630-47.

A real-time procedure was executed on Feb 1 to swap the prime solid-state recorder (SSR) from the B-side to the A-side. This swap concludes a six-month interval of health and trending data collection on SSR-B. A second real-time procedure was executed on Feb 1 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes GRS 1716-249, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jan 31, and iPTF17cw, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jan 23.
