On September 21 at 18950.56 SOD (05:15:50.56) UT the FREGATE gamma-ray instrument on the High Energy Transient Explorer (HETE) detected a bright gamma-ray burst (GRB). The burst was also seen by the X-detector on the WXM X-ray instrument and was therefore well-localized in the X direction; however, the burst was outside the fully-coded field-of-view of the WXM Y-detector, and therefore information on the Y direction of the burst was limited. Cross-correlation of the HETE and Ulysses time…

The High Energy Transient Explorer (HETE): Mission and Science Overview

The High Energy Transient Explorer (HETE ) mission is devoted to the study of gamma‐ray bursts (GRBs) using soft X‐ray, medium X‐ray, and gamma‐ray instruments mounted on a compact spacecraft. The

What HETE Sends to the GCN

The results of the HETE User’s Group Meeting, which took place at the Woods Hole GRB Conference, are summarized, in which ideas were exchanged between the observing community and the HetE and GCN teams.

X-ray flashes and X-ray rich Gamma Ray Bursts

X-ray flashes are detected in the Wide Field Cameras on BeppoSAX in the energy range 2-25 keV as bright X-ray sources lasting of the order of minutes, but remaining undetected in the Gamma Ray Bursts

First Year Operations of the HETE Burst Alert Network

The BAN (Burst Alert Network) is comprised by an equatorial belt of VHF receiving stations dedicated to relaying via the internet HETE burst alerts and spacecraft status reports to the MIT Operations

HETE Mission Operations

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
