Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 16 August 2019 9.00am EDT

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

Real-time procedures were executed on Aug 10 and 15 to perform full-frame dark current readouts of the Aspect Camera Assembly CCD. Another real-time procedure was executed on Aug 16 to uplink a flight software patch that updates the calibration coefficients for the coarse sun sensor. This will improve the accuracy of the coarse sun vector angles computed by the on-board computer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of Sgr A* coordinated with NuSTAR.
