Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 18 November 2016 9.00am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on Nov 15 to uplink a flight software patch that updates the default initialization state of the Multiple Stars Suspected (MSS) Image Status Filter from enabled to disabled in both the code and SCS 36. The patch also cleared the contents of SCS 97. Additional real-time procedures were executed on Nov 15-16 to dump OBC-A and -B memory as a follow-up to the patch. The dump will be used to update the baseline memory images maintained on the ground.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of Aql X-1A, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Oct 4, an observation of AT2016hnkA, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Nov 10, an observation of the ORION NEBULA CLUSTER coordinated with NuStar and an observation of FRB 121102 coordinated with the GBT.
