(Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System)
(ground gamma ray telescope array in Arizona)
VERITAS (for Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System)
is a gamma-ray telescope array, a
Cherenkov telescope consisting of four 12-meter optical
telescopes at Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory, Arizona, in operation since 2007.
I believe it is designed to slew sufficiently rapidly to zero
in on some gamma-ray bursts. It has also been used for visible light
observations including occultation observations of stars occulted by
asteroids and as an optical interferometer.
