Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Team
National Space, Science, and Technology Center (NSSTC)
Our group includes scientists and engineers from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Universities Space Research Association (USRA), and the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). We are actively involved in several projects which are designed to investigate the high energy regime of our Solar System and Universe. The primary objectives of our research are to study gamma-ray phenomena such as pulsars, black holes, other galaxies, gamma-ray bursts, terrestrial gamma-ray flashes, and other exotic astrophysical objects.

    Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) is the secondary instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST). The experiment supports the Large-Area Telescope (LAT) in its observations of gamma-ray bursts and follows in the tracks of CGRO BATSE in observations of pulsars, terrestrial gamma-ray flashes, soft gamma repeaters, solar flares, and any high energy transient phenomena, with a strong emphasis on broad-band spectral measurements. The Principal Investigator of this project is Dr. Bill Paciesas.
