Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 8 February 2019 9.00am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Feb 6 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer. A second real-time procedure was executed on Feb 8 to perform a full-frame dark current readout of the Aspect Camera Assembly CCD.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of Gaia17bpi, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Dec 21, an observation of GX 13+1 coordinated with NRAO, observations of SDSS J1110+6459 and GJ 15A coordinated with HST, an observation of GSN 069, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jan 31 and is coordinated with ATCA, and an observation of Swift J1728.9-3613, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Feb 6.
