Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 12 August 2005 7.00am EDT

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

Of note last week was the transition from a serial to TCP/IP network interface for the Avionics and Software Validation Test set (ASVT; Chandra's simulator). The new interface for the Telemetry and Command Test Set (TCTS) component of ASVT is part of the plan to migrate the operations systems from the SGI to Linux operating system.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of A0620-00 coordinated with the VLA.
