V-FASTR

The V-FASTR experiment uses the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) to search for short (< 1 second) duration radio transient sources. Fast radio transients are associated with compact, high-energy events and are thus useful probes of interesting physics. At present, we are obtaining tens of hours of observing time month, a figure that will soon expand to hundreds of hours when the VLBA sensitivity upgrade is completed.
