What frbcatdb can do for you

  • Provides a relational database interface to Virtual Observation Event (VOEvent) data.
  • Stores VOEvents into a relational database.
  • Makes VOEvent data more easily accessible for analysis.
  • Succesfully used as a backend for the Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) catalog.

The frbcatdb is a database to store a catalog of Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs). The DB is intended to contain old FRB events as well as new FRBs detected by the AA-ALERT FRB detection pipeline from Apertif observations and also possible follow-up observations or others FRBs detected by other telescopes. The frbcatdb is attached to the VOEvent backbone and uses this infrastructure as its source.
