The Konus-W experiment to be flown on board the GGS-Wind spacecraft is designed to observe gamma-ray bursts and solar flares with moderate spectral and high time resolution. Two large scintillators are used to provide omnidirectional sensitivity. The primary scientific objectives are the study of the continuum energy spectra and spectral features of these events in the energy range of 10 keV to 10 MeV, as well as their time histories in soft, medium, and hard energy bands, with a time… 
Konus-UF and Helicon-I gamma-ray burst experiments
We present Konus-UF and Helicon-I, the future space-based experiments designed to study temporal and spectral characteristics of gamma-ray bursts, solar flares, soft gammarepeater bursts, and other
Studies of cosmic gamma-ray bursts and soft gamma repeaters in the Russian-American Konus-Wind experiment
The studies of the cosmic gamma-ray bursts and soft gamma repeaters that have been performed in the Russian-American Konus-Wind experiment during the last several years have been summarized. The
The Interplanetary Network Supplement to the BeppoSAX Gamma-ray Burst Catalogs
Between 1996 July and 2002 April, one or more spacecraft of the interplanetary network detected 786 cosmic gamma-ray bursts that were also detected by the Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor and/or Wide-Field
Konus-Wind observations of the new soft gamma-ray repeater SGR 0501+4516
In 2008 August, the new soft gamma-ray repeater SGR 0501+4516 was discovered by Swift. The source was soon confirmed by several groups in space- and ground-based multi-wavelength observations. In
The Interplanetary Network Supplement to the HETE-2 Gamma-Ray Burst Catalog
Between 2000 November and 2006 May, one or more spacecraft of the interplanetary network (IPN) detected 226 cosmic gamma-ray bursts that were also detected by the FREGATE experiment aboard the
The second Konus-Wind catalog of short gamma-ray bursts
In this catalog, we present the results of a systematic study of 295 short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected by Konus-Wind (KW) from 1994 to 2010. From the temporal and spectral analyses of the
A Search for Gravitationally Lensed Gamma-Ray Bursts in the Data of the Interplanetary Network and Konus-Wind

AGILE mini-calorimeter gamma-ray burst catalog
The mini-calorimeter of the AGILE satellite can observe the high-energy part of gamma-ray bursts with good timing-capability. We present the data of the 85 hard gamma-ray bursts observed by the
Design and In-Orbit Performance of the Suzaku Wide-Band All-Sky Monitor
The Suzaku Wide-band All-sky Monitor (WAM) consists of thick BGO anti-coincidence shields of the Hard X-ray Detectors (HXD). It views about half of the sky and has a geometrical area of 800 cm per
Cosmic Gamma-ray Bursts Studies with Ioffe Institute Konus Experiments
We present a short review of GRB studies performed for many years by Ioffe Institute experiments onboard a number of space missions. The first breakthrough in the studies of GRB was made possible by
