This will be the page describing BurstCube and provide more information including presentations etc.

BurstCube will be a 6U CubeSat (10 cm x 20 cm x 30 cm) composed of 4 scintillator detectors read out by arrays of silicon photomultipliers. BurstCube will automatically detect gamma-ray transients onboard (astrophysical, solar, and terrestrial), sending rapid alerts to the ground to enable follow-up observations. BurstCube is currently in development and will lauch in the early 2020's.
