Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 3 February 2006 9.00am EST

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

Of note last week was the approval for the integration of the HRC Engineering Unit (known as Proof of Concept unit) with the Avionics and Software Validation Test set (ASVT). The new capability will allow testing of new or modified HRC on-orbit procedures directly with the spacecraft simulator.

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes an observation of M81 coordinated with the VLA.
