Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 5 November 2021 9.00am EDT

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

Real-time procedures were executed on Nov 3 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).

Chandra passed through the first, second, and third eclipses of the season on Oct 29, Nov 1 and Nov 4 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes an observation of ERO_TDE_1, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Oct28.
