Abstract: The Monitoring and Trends Analysis (M&TA) System for the Chandra X-ray Observatory consists of multiple software threads designed to monitor and visualize spacecraft behavior. The Science Instrument (SI) background monitoring is one such thread that is designed to compile a temporally and spatially ordered table of the observed flux and energy spectrum in detector coordinates. In this paper we describe the design of the tools, and applications of the data products generated, and the output product flexibility.
