Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 8 January 2021 9.00am EST

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

Real-time procedures were executed on Jan 6 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer and to perform a diagnostic dump of the Control Processing Electronics (CPE).

Additional real-time procedures were executed during each ground contact to reset the DSN Outage Dead Man Load.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of GRB201214B, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Dec 16.
