Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 8 March 2024 9.00am EST

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of SRGA J144459.2-60420, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Mar 1. A scheduled observation of SDSS J162549.66+4806 was impacted and will be rescheduled in a future week.

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

Chandra passed through the 18th, 19th, and 20th eclipses of the season on Mar 1, 4, and 7 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

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