Fermi: Monitoring the Gamma-Ray Universe
AbstractSince 2008, the Large Area Telescope and the Gamma-ray Burst Monitor on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have been monitoring the entire sky at energies from about 8 keV to more than 1 TeV. Photon-level data and high-level data products are made publicly available in near-real time, and efforts continue to improve the response time. This long-duration, all-sky monitoring has enabled a broad range of science, from atmospheric phenomena on Earth to signals from high-redshift sources. The Fermi instrument teams have worked closely with multiwavelength and multi-messenger observers and theorists to maximize the scientific return from the observatory, and they look forward to continued cooperative efforts as Fermi moves into its second decade of operation.
