Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 15 March 2019 9.00am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Mar 9 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer. Additional real-time procedures were executed on Mar 9, Mar 12, and Mar 14 to perform full-frame dark current readouts of the Aspect Camera Assembly CCD.

Of note this week, the Chandra Cycle 21 proposal deadline was Mar 14 at 6pm EDT.

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