Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 6 March 2020 9.00am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Mar 4 to perform a routine diagnostic dump of the Control Processing Electronics (CPE). Another real-time procedure was executed on Mar 4 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 an observation of GW170817 coordinated with VLA and HST, and an observation of SN2020oi, which is a follow-up to a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity which was accepted on Jan 21.
