Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 13 August 2010 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to include a 60 ks observation of the source H 1743-322 that was accepted as a fast turn-around Target Of Opportunity (TOO) on Aug 6. The loads were replanned to remove observations of PSRB0906-49, SDSSJ130802.04+5538, SDSSJ135920.99+5137, and SDSSJ142610.59+4411, which will be rescheduled in future weeks. The replanned loads were uplinked on Aug 7.

A real-time procedure was completed on August 12 to update the on-board ephemeris.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below
