We present the newly developed broadband transient monitor using the Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) and the MAXI Gas Slit Camera (GSC) data. Our broadband transient monitor monitors high energy transient sources from 2 keV to 200 keV in seven energy bands by combining the BAT (15-200 keV) and the GSC (2-20 keV) data. Currently, the daily and the 90-minute (one orbit) averaged light curves are available for 106 high energy transient sources. Our broadband transient monitor is available to the…

FRB131104 Swift/BAT Data Revisited: No Evidence of a Gamma-Ray Counterpart
We present a reanalysis of the Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) data around the radio detection of FRB 131104. Possible evidence of a gamma-ray counterpart was presented by DeLaunay et al. However,


Announcement of the Swift/BAT Hard X-ray Transient Monitor
The Swift/Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) hard X-ray transient monitor provides near real-time coverage of the X-ray sky in the energy range 15-50 keV. The BAT observes 88% of the sky each day with a
The Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) on the SWIFT Midex Mission
Abstracthe burst alert telescope (BAT) is one of three instruments on the Swift MIDEX spacecraft to study gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The BAT first detects the GRB and localizes the burst direction to
The First MAXI/GSC Catalog in the High Galactic-Latitude Sky
AbstractWe present the first unbiased source catalog of the Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) mission athigh Galactic latitudes (|b|>10 ◦ ), produced from the first 7-month data (2009 September 1
In-Orbit Performance of MAXI Gas Slit Camera (GSC) on ISS
We report the in-orbit performance of the Gas Slit Camera (GSC) on the MAXI (Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image) mission carried on the International Space Station (ISS). Its commissioning operation
MAXI GSC observations of a spectral state transition in the black hole candidate XTE J1752-223
We present the first results on the black hole candidate XTE J1752-223 from the Gas Slit Camera (GSC) on-board the Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) on the International Space Station. Including
The Swift gamma-ray burst mission
The Swift mission will determine the origin of GRB, classify GRBs and search for new types, study the interaction of the ultrarelativistic outflows of GRBs with their surrounding medium, and use GRBs to study the early universe out to z >10.
Fermi Large Area Telescope Observations of Markarian 421: The Missing Piece of its Spectral Energy Distribution
We report on the gamma-ray activity of the high-synchrotron-peaked BL Lacertae object Markarian 421 (Mrk 421) during the first 1.5 years of Fermi operation, from 2008 August 5 to 2010 March 12. We
Gas Slit Camera (GSC) onboard MAXI on ISS
The Gas Slit Camera (GSC) is an X-ray instrument on the MAXI (Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image) mission on the International Space Station. It is designed to scan the entire sky every 92-minute orbital
X-ray variability with spectral state transitions in NS-LMXBs observed with MAXI/GSC and Swift/BAT
X-ray variabilities with spectral state transitions in bright low mass X-ray binaries containing a neutron star are investigated by using the one-day bin light curves of MAXI/GSC (Gas Slit Camera)
A new X-ray nova MAXI J1910-057 (=Swift J1910.2-0546) and mass accretion inflow
We report on a long-term monitoring of a newly discovered X-ray nova, MAXI J1910-057 (= Swift J1910.2-0546), by MAXI and Swift. The new X-ray transient was first detected on 2012 May 31 by MAXI Gas
