Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 26 January 2007 9.00am EST

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

Of note last week was the completion of a network infrastructure upgrade at the Operations Control Center. The upgrade addresses end-of-life issues for a number of components, and improves the design and fault tolerance of the network. The transition to the new components was completed without impact to operations on Jan 20.

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes a series of calibration observations of Vega.
