Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 17 October 2014 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of NuSTAR J164222-4642.9, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Oct 13 and to update the target coordinates of two of the Comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring/Mars encounter observations. A planned observation of SDSS J163718.64+274026.5 was impacted by the replan and will be rescheduled in a future week.

A real-time procedure was executed on Oct 15 to perform a diagnostic dump of the Control Processing Electronics (CPE).

Of note this week was the Chandra Quarterly Review conducted on Oct 15 in Cambridge.

The schedule of targets for the next two weeks is shown below and includes observations of GRB 140930B and NuSTAR J164222-4642.9, which were accepted as Targets of Opportunity on Oct 1 and 13 respectively
