By pushing express news about the brightening of high-energy objects, we aim to speed up high-energy astronomer’s research and to enlighten many fans of astronomy about activity in space that involves high-energy bands.
Our system is composed of three main components:
- Batch system: which scrapes Swift/Fermi/MAXI Web sites, collects light curve data about transient objects, analyzes them, and derives several candidate objects which show symptoms of increasing brightness
- API back-end: which returns the lightcurves from our database in response to the request from the App's front-end
- iOS front-end App: which notifies you about brightening objects and shows their information such as lightcurves
