We propose to utilize the sensitivity of Chandra to measure a jet break in the afterglow of a SGRB. The angular resolution will also ensure no contamination to the afterglow from a host galaxy AGN. We request a pair of TOO observations of a SGRB with a bright X-ray afterglow to probe a range of j > 5-20 degrees.
