In this work we present the results of a search for continuous gravitational waves from the Galactic Center using LIGO O2 data. The search uses the Band-Sampled-Data directed search pipeline, which performs a semi-coherent wide-parameter-space search, exploiting the robustness of the FrequencyHough transform algorithm. The search targets signals emitted by isolated asymmetric spinning neutron stars, located within 25-150 parsecs from the Galactic Center. The frequencies covered in this search…
