Energies of the 54 levels belonging to the (1s22s22p6) 3s23p5, 3s3p6, 3s23p43d and 3s3p53d configurations of Fe X have been calculated using the GRASP code of Dyall et al. ([CITE]). Additionally, radiative rates, oscillator strengths, and line strengths are calculated for all electric dipole (E1), magnetic dipole (M1), electric quadrupole (E2), and magnetic quadrupole (M2) transitions among these levels. Comparisons are made with results available in the literature, and the accuracy of the data is assessed. Our energy levels are estimated to be accurate to better than 3%, whereas results for other parameters are probably accurate to better than 20%. Additionally, the agreement between measured and calculated lifetimes is better than 10%.
