RXTE All-Sky Monitor Real-Time Data

This page will allow you to access the real-time data collected by the ASM. Real-time data is analyzed as it is recieved from the satellite and the collected data is made available usually every three hours. Results are kept for at least one week and up to two weeks.

Below are two buttons. 'Plot Data' will graph the last one to two weeks of data on the screen for you and will show the average daily flux intensity, in units of counts per second per SSC (Scanning Shadow Camera), versus the RXTE Mission Date. (This is the number of days since January 1, 1994, a reference date used in this mission.) This graph is called a light curve.

The 'Show Data' button creates a listing of the data including flux intensity, time, and uncertainty of the intensity (used for error analysis).
