During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of 4U 1630-47, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Apr 23. Loads for the replanned schedule were uplinked on Apr 24. Planned observations of COSMOS Legacy fields were impacted and will be rescheduled in future weeks.

A real-time procedure was executed on Apr 22 to perform a diagnostic dump of the Control Processing Electronics (CPE).

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of NGC 5204 coordinated with XMM.
