TELESCOPES: Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) detecting initial bursts; X-Ray Telescope (XRT) studying X-ray afterglows; 30-centimeter f/12.
Launched in 2004, NASA's SWIFT satellite with its gamma-ray burst alert telescope (BAT), X-ray telescope (XRT) and an ultraviolet/ optical telescope had so far imaged 312 GR events, 264 X-ray transients and 98 ultraviolet optical transients.
Its wide-area search system is the Burst Alert Telescope (BAT), a coded-mask telescope with a cadmium-mercury-telluride detector sensitive to "hard" X-rays with energies between 15,000 and 150,000 electron volts (eV).
On March 28, 2011, Swift's Burst Alert Telescope discovered a source in the far northern sky constellation Draco, when it erupted with a series of powerful X-ray blasts.
However, two rounds of electronics problems have plagued Swift's Burst Alert Telescope (BAT)--the wide-angle detector that will register GRBs in the first place.
But, in the time between these almost-daily cosmic explosions, Swift's Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) scans the sky.
