Bustling Universe Radio Survey Telescope in Taiwan
BURSTT is a unique fisheye radio software telescope in Taiwan dedicated to finding mysterious fast radio bursts (FRBs)
The positional accuracy of 0.0003 deg reveals the sky locations of radio bursts.
Extremely wide field of view
The nearly all-sky survey maximizes the detection chance of fast radio bursts.
Synergy with multi-messengers
Complete census at the nearby Universe seen by multi-messenger facilities.
Facility and location
Log-Periodic Dipole Array (LPDA) antenna
The LPDA antennas have been characterized and measured for use in numerous scientific and industrial applications.
The main station and outriggers
The main station includes 256 antennas at the Fushan Botanical Garden in Taiwan. Outriggers are deployed in Taiwan, Hawaii, etc.
Real-time pulse search
BURSTT conducts real-time search for fast radio bursts
BURSTT hundles ~800 GB data every second
