We describe the INTEGRAL reference catalog which classifies previously known bright X-ray and gamma-ray sources before the launch of INTEGRAL. These sources are, or have been at least once, brighter than 1m Crab above 3 keV, and are expected to be detected by INTEGRAL. This catalog is being used in the INTEGRALQuick Look Analysisto discover new sources or significantly variable sources. We compiled several published X-ray and gamma-ray catalogs, and surveyed recent publications for new sources…

Here we report an all-sky soft gamma-ray source catalog based on IBIS observations performed during the first 1000 orbits of INTEGRAL. The database for the construction of the source list consists of
JEM-X/INTEGRAL X-ray survey of the galactic center region
An X-ray survey of the Galactic center region with a radius of ~20◦ has been performed using the data obtained with the JEM-X telescope onboard the INTEGRAL observatory over ~10 years of observations
The catalog of variable sources detected by INTEGRAL - I. Catalog and techniques
Context. During its 6 years of operation, INTEGRAL/ISGRI has detected more than 500 sources. Many of these sources are variable. Taking into account that nearly half of INTEGRAL/ISGRI sources are new
First AGILE catalog of high-confidence gamma-ray sources
We present the first catalog of high-confidence γ-ray sources detected by the AGILE satellite during observations performed from July 9, 2007 to June 30, 2008. Cataloged sources were detected by
2SXPS: An Improved and Expanded Swift X-Ray Telescope Point-source Catalog
We present the 2SXPS (Swift-XRT Point Source) catalog, containing 206,335 point sources detected by the Swift X-ray Telescope (XRT) in the 0.3–10 keV energy range. This catalog represents a
A description of sources detected by INTEGRAL during the first 4 years of observations
Context. In its first 4 years of observing the sky above 20 keV, INTEGRAL-ISGRI has detected 500 sources, around half of which are new or unknown at these energies. Follow-up observations at other
Second AGILE catalogue of gamma-ray sources
Aims. We present the second AGILE–GRID catalogue (2AGL) of γ-ray sources in the energy range 100 MeV–10 GeV. Methods. With respect to previous AGILE–GRID catalogues, the current 2AGL catalogue is
The second INTEGRAL AGN catalogue
Aims. The INTEGRAL mission provides a large data set for studying the hard X-ray properties of AGN and allows testing of the unified scheme for AGN. Methods. We present analysis of INTEGRAL
INTEGRAL SPI Observation of the Galactic Central Radian: Contribution of Discrete Sources and Implication for the Diffuse Emission
The INTEGRAL observatory has been performing a deep survey of the Galactic central radian since 2003, with the goal of both extracting a catalog of sources and gaining insight into the Galactic
Gamma-ray all-sky imaging with the Burst and Transient Source Experiment
The BATSE mission aboard CGRO monitored the whole sky in the 20 keV−1 MeV energy band continuously from April 1991 until June 2000. Although BATSE had very poor intrinsic angular resolution, the data


A General Gamma-Ray Source Catalog
The past several years have seen unprecedented growth in the field of gamma-ray astronomy. Highly successful missions such as the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory (CGRO) have led to both a great
The HEAO 1 A-4 catalog of high-energy X-ray sources
Results are reported from an all-sky survey carried out at high X-ray energies (13-180 keV) from August 1977 until January 1979 using data obtained with the UCSD/MIT Hard X-Ray and Low-Energy
INTEGRAL discovery of a bright highly obscured galactic X-ray binary source IGR J16318-4848
INTEGRALregularly scans the Galactic plane to search for new objects and in particular for absorbed sources with the bulk of their emission above 10− 20 keV. The first new INTEGRALsource was
A catalogue of low-mass X-ray binaries
We present a catalogue of low-mass X-ray binaries. The catalogue is an updated version of the catalogue of van Paradijs (1995). This new catalogue contains 150 sources, 31 new low-mass X-ray binaries
A catalogue of high-mass X-ray binaries
We present a catalogue of high-mass X-ray binaries. The catalogue is an updated version of the catalogue of van Paradijs (1995). This new catalogue contains 130 sources, 61 new high-mass X-ray
BATSE Observations of the Piccinotti Sample of Active Galactic Nuclei
BATSE Earth-occultation data have been used to search for emission in the 20-100 keV band from all sources in the Piccinotti sample, which represents the only complete 2-10 keV survey to date of the
Time resolved spectroscopy of GRB 030501 using INTEGRAL
The gamma-ray instruments on-board INTEGRAL offer an unique opportunity to perform time resolved analysis on GRBs. The imager IBIS allows accurate positioning of GRBs and broad band spectral
INTEGRAL/RXTE observations of Cygnus X-1
We present results from simultaneous observations of Cyg X‐1 with INTEGRAL and RXTE in 2002 November and December, employing the new RXTE calibration from HEASOFT 5.3. The broad‐band X‐ray/γ‐ray
