XMM-Newton Short-term Schedule

The Short-term Schedule gives an overview of scheduled observations covering the time range from the past week until the upcoming ~2-4 weeks.

Background: The planning and scheduling procedure is described in Sect. 8.2 of the Policies and Procedures. In addition, the process of scheduling XMM-Newton observations is described in A guided tour to the scheduling of an XMM-Newton orbit.

Description: Each row lists the revolution number (REV#), Observation Identifier (ObsID), target name, pointing coordinates plus position angle (PA), start and stop times, prime instrument, accumulated exposure times (in kiloseconds) for each instrument (without overhead), and name of the Principal investigator (PI). The start and stop times refer to the instrument activities required to perform the observation. The exposure times are accumulated over all exposures taken with the same instrument. Especially for OM, the observation can be split in shorter exposures with different filter/mode. EPIC exposure times in brackets indicate that one or all exposures use the closed filter. Details can be seen when clicking on the ObsID.
The row marked in blue indicates the target that is scheduled for the time of the last table update. The creation date is given at the top of the table.

Caveats: The scheduling of an XMM-Newton revolution may have to be revised (see Sects. 8.2, 8.3, and 5.2.2 of the Policies and Procedures). Contingencies of any type and solar flaring activity may impact at different levels the scheduled programme. The Observation Log Browser can be checked to see what was actually done.

Update frequency: Every 8 hours or when the schedule is updated (new revolution planned or any existing updated). The latest available version can be viewed after clearing the browser buffer from the contents of any previous sessions.
