Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 4 March 2011 9.00am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Mar 2 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer. A second real-time procedure was completed on Mar 2 to update the on-board ephemeris.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of SIX-2 and SIX-4 that are coordinated with a ground-based observatory.
