Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 24 September 2021 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of GRB 210919A which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Sep 19. Time from scheduled observations of PKS 0023-26 was impacted by the replan and will be rescheduled in a future week.

A real-time procedure was performed on Sep 17 to perform a Low Rate Dump of the TEL_DATA portion of OBC Non-Checksummed Memory. This allowed the flight team to access detail information regarding the the status of the gratings.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below.
