JACPOT XRB status
JACPOT XRB is a Target of Opportunity project, to be triggered by a detection of an outburst with an X-ray satellite (RXTE, SWIFT, INTEGRAL or MAXI), or, for the white dwarf system, on an AAVSO alert. On receipt of an alert, we will immediately begin monitoring with the VLA, and on detection of radio emission, the VLBA will begin its monitoring campaign. In 2009-2010, we monitored a white dwarf, a neutron star, and a black hole. In 2010-2011, we only monitored a black hole system, as our target neutron star proved too faint. In 2011-2012 we are currently allocated time to monitor a further black hole source.
