Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 13 February 2004 9.30am EST

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

A real-time procedure was completed on Feb 9 to update the on-board ephemeris.

A real-time procedure was run on Feb 12 to patch the OBC telemetry request list (TRL). The TRL was patched to allow the OBC to receive rate data from the HRC anti-coincidence and focal-plane detectors. This data is planned for future use within the radiation monitoring process, providing a backup to the EPHIN detector.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of IRAS 13349+2438 and NGC 1313 coordinated with HST.
