Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 19 January 2018 9.00am EST

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of Mkn421, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Jan 18. Loads for the replanned schedule were uplinked on Jan 18. Scheduled observations of NGC3963, NVSSJ162830+115403, SDSSJ091417.69+2216, RCW89, ClGJ092921+120505, J1046+0243, and RCW89 were impacted by the replan and will be will be rescheduled in a future week.

As an addendum to the Jan 12 status report last week, real-time procedures were executed on Jan 5 to disable SCS-29 and to dump and clear the EPS glitch counters as post-eclipse season actions.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of DM Tau, which is a follow-up to a Target of Opportunity which was accepted on Nov 22, and an observation of GW170817, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jan 5.
