This paper provides a technical description of the SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS), an international network of experiments with the goal of providing an early warning of a galactic supernova. 
The SuperNova Early Warning System
A core collapse in the Milky Way will produce an enormous burst of neutrinos in detectors world-wide. Such a burst has the potential to provide an early warning of a supernova’s ap pearance. I willExpand
Supernova Detection with SNO
Abstract Part of the SNO+ experimental program is the preparation for detection of neutrinos from a supernova. Tests of the acquisition chain, neutrino collective effects, and the SuperNovaExpand
The Supernova Early Warning System
Alec Habig and Kate Scholberg describe the Supernova Early Warning System (SNEWS), an international network of neutrino detectors set up to provide a fast alert to the astronomical community if theExpand
SNEWS - The Supernova Early Warning System
The SuperNova Early Warning System is a cooperative project involving many experimenters coming from several, past and present, neutrino detectors. The primary goal of the collaboration is to provideExpand
SNEWS – The SuperNova Early Warning System
SNEWS is a cooperative effort between the world's neutrino detection experiments to spread the news that a star in our galaxy has just experienced a core-collapse and is about to be seen as aExpand
Supernova neutrino detection
In this presentation I summarize the main detection channels for neutrinos from core-collapse supernovae, and describe current status of and future prospects for supernova-neutrino-sensitiveExpand
Supernova Neutrino Detection
Abstract This talk will briefly survey the capabilities of current detectors sensitive to supernova neutrino bursts. It will then cover recent progess in development of supernova neutrino detectionExpand
Neutrinos from supernovae as a trigger for gravitational wave search.
Exploiting an improved analysis of the nue signal from the explosion of a galactic core collapse supernova, we show that it is possible to identify within about 10 ms the time of the bounce, which isExpand
HALO, a supernova neutrino observatory
Abstract The Helium and Lead Observatory (HALO) is a new supernova neutrino detector at SNOLAB base on neutrino reactions on lead. Currently it is the only detector whose signal is dominated by the νExpand
Supernova neutrino detection
When a massive star collapses at the end of its life, nearly all of the gravitational binding energy of the resulting remnant is released in the form of neutrinos. The burst of neutrinos from aExpand


Observation of a neutrino burst in coincidence with supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
A burst of eight neutrino events preceding the optical detection of the supernova in the Large Magellanic cloud has been observed in a large underground water Cherenkov detector. The events span anExpand
SNO and supernovae
Abstract The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) has unique capabilities as a supernova detector. In the event of a galactic supernova there are opportunities, with the data that SNO would collect, toExpand
Real time supernova neutrino burst detection with MACRO
Abstract The MACRO experiment has been running as a supernova neutrino detector since 1989 and is sensitive to the whole galaxy since the beginning of 1992. A galactic supernova would produce someExpand
Supernova neutrino detection with LVD
Abstract We report on the Large Volume Detector (LVD), running as a Supernova neutrino telescope since June 1992. The LVD characteristics and performances are discussed in comparison with otherExpand
Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.
A neutrino burst was observed in the Kamiokande II detector on 23 February, 7:35:35 UT ( +- 1 min) during a time interval of 13 sec. The signal consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36Expand
OMNIS, the Observatory of Multiflavor neutrInos from Supernovae
Abstract OMNIS, the Observatory for Multiflavor NeutrInos from Supernovae, is being designed to detect supernova neutrinos via their interactions with lead nuclei. The information obtained willExpand
On the Event Observed in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino Observatory during the Occurrence of Supernova 1987a
We discuss here the characteristics of the event detected in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino Observatory on February 23, 1987, consisting of 5 interactions recorded during 7s. The measuredExpand
Angular distribution of events from SN1987A.
Improved measurements of the event energies and energy uncertainties, relative times, triggering efficiencies, and angles from the presumed source are presented. Expand
