Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 7 February 2020 9.00am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Feb 1 to swap the prime solid-state recorder (SSR) from the B-side to the A-side. This swap concludes a six-month interval of health and trending data collection on SSR-B. Another real-time procedure was executed on Feb 5 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of AT2019rwd, which are follow-ups to a Target of Opportunity which was accepted on Oct 17 and are coordinated with NuStar, observations of V4641 Sgr, which were accepted as Targets of Opportunity on Feb 5 and are coordinated with Swift and LCO-FTP, and an observation of SN2020oi, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jan 21.
