Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 2 August 2019 9.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Aug 1 to swap the prime solid-state recorder (SSR) from the A-side to the B-side. This swap concludes a six-month interval of health and trending data collection on SSR-A.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of SN2003gk, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jun 17.
