    HETE Mission Operations are unique in that a small team is responsible for full-time operation of the HETE spacecraft, three primary ground stations, and fourteen Burst Alert stations. These requirements have led to the development of a suite of operations procedures and software which attempt...

    The very large field of view (∼1/5 of the sky) of the AGILE gamma-ray satellite allows us to monitor broad sky regions with a few pointings, increasing the chance of detecting variable sources and efficiently sampling their characteristics. We present the AGILE exposure and sensitivity maps...

    The ESA-Mission INTEGRAL (International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory) is the next step in low-energy gamma-ray astronomy (up to 10 MeV) and will be launched in 2002. Its two main instruments, the spectrometer SPI and the Imager IBIS complement each other: SPI is dedicated to high-resolution...

    The launch of NASA's HESSI satellite will provide solar scientists with ≥ 2arcsec imaging/≥ 2 keV spectroscopy of solar flares from ~10 keV to 10 MeV for the first time. We summarize recent developments in our understanding of solar flares based primarily on gammaray line...

  • The Prompt and Afterglow Emission of GRB 001109 Measured by BeppoSAX. Amati, L.; Frontera, F.; Castro Cerón, J. M.; Costa, E.; Feroci, M.; Gandolfi, G.; Giommi, P.; Guidorzi, C.; Masetti, N.; Montanari, E.; Piro, L.; Soffitta, P.; in ’t Zand, J. J. M. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2003, Vol. 662 Issue 1, p387 

    We present here preliminary results of BeppoSAX measurements of the prompt (2-700 keV) and afterglow (0.1 - 10 keV) emission of the 'dark' GRB 001109. The burst light curves show indication of pulse broadening with the decrease of the energy band and its average spectrum is well described by the...

    The HETE Burst Alert Network [1] was designed to allow propagation of burst localizations from the HETE spacecraft to the GCN in real time. In periods where no burst is active, the same network is used to relay spacecraft housekeeping data to the Mission Operations Center at MIT. The Burst Alert...

    AGILE (Light Imaging Detector for Gamma Astronomy) is a satellite for the detection of gamma-ray sources in the energy range 30 MeV - 50 GeV within a large field of view (∼ 1/5 of the sky) and it is planned to fly in the years 2003 - 2006, a period in which no other mission entirely...

    The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory was de-orbited on 4 June 2000 after 9 highly successful years in orbit. Major discoveries were made every year with Compton. We present a retrospective overview of the mission from launch to deorbit,, highlighting some seminal scientific findings.

    One of the interesting prospects raised by CGRO but never properly investigated due to the lack of instrumental sensitivity and resolution is the gamma-ray line emission from giant molecular clouds. In this paper, we study the 0.511 MeV annihilation line that is emitted when cosmic rays (CRs)...
