HETE

The High Energy Transient Experiment, an international mission scheduled by NASA for launch on a Pegasus rocket in 1994. The prime objective is to carry out the first multiwavelength study of gamma-ray bursts with UV, X-ray, and γ-ray instruments mounted on a single spacecraft. Bursts can be localized with about 10 arcsec accuracy, in near real-time, on board the spacecraft, and these positions can be transmitted directly to a network of receivers at ground-based observatories, enabling rapid and sensitive follow-up studies in the radio, IR, and optical bands.
