LOTIS: GRB follow-up observations at early times

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

LOTIS is an automated wide field-of-view telescope system capable of responding to GRB events as early as 10s after a trigger from the GCN which rapidly distributes coordinates from the Beppo/SAX, BATSE and RXTE instruments. Measurements of optical activity at these early times will provide important clues to the GRB production mechanism. In over two year's of operation, LOTIS has responded to 40 GCN triggers including GRB971217 with l10s and GRB980703 within 5 hours. We report results from these events and constraints on simultaneous optical signals during these GRB's.
