  • We explore the ability of high-energy observations to constrain orbital parameters of long-period massive binary systems by means of an inverse Compton (IC) model acting in colliding wind environments. This is particularly relevant for (very) long-period binaries where orbital parameters are often poorly known from conventional methods, as is the case, e.g. for the Wolf-Rayet (W-R) star binary system WR 147, where INTEGRAL and MAGIC upper limits on the high-energy emission have recently been… CONTINUE READING
