Operations CXO Status Report

Monday 24 April 2000 9.30 EDT

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

A new version of the Off-Line System (OFLS release 8.1A) was installed on the operational strings on 4/19 following completion of acceptance testing at the OCC. The release provides several enhancements and a number of fixes including allowing target offsets for roll constrained observations and correctly calculating the LGA visibility with allowance for Sun shade door blockage. The new release was used to build the schedule and command loads for the week of April 23.

The planned observations for next week are as follows.
