Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 23 August 2019 9.00am EDT

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

Real-time procedures were executed on Aug 16-18 to dump OBC-A and -B memory as a follow-up to the OBC patch on Aug 16. The dump will be used to update the baseline memory images maintained on the ground. An additional real-time procedure was executed on Aug 17 to perform full-frame dark current readouts of the Aspect Camera Assembly CCD.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of EXO 1846-031 coordinated with VLA and NuSTAR, and an observation of Eta Carinae coordinated with HST.
