Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 7 May 2021 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of 4U1820-30, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on May 2. Time from scheduled observations of IGR J16318-4848, SDSS J082618.04+5653, 4FGL J1639.3-5146, SDSS J144231.37-0209, SN 2005V and IRASF15480-0344 were impacted by the replan and will be rescheduled in a future week.

Real-time procedures were executed on May 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).

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes observations of IGR J16318-4848 coordinated with NuSTAR, an observation of NGC 1365 coordinated with NuSTAR, and observations of 4U1820-30, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on May 2.
