Parkes observations for project P886 semester 2015APRS_BPSR_01
The Parkes radio telescope has discovered more than half of the known radio pulsars. Much of the raw data from historical surveys has now been collated and stored in the CSIRO data archive. This allows us to reprocess these surveys with modern search algorithms. We expect to discover pulsars that were not discovered in the original processing (su... morech as pulsars in fast binary systems, intermittent pulsars, burst events, etc.). This proposal is to request observing time to confirm our expected candidates. less

P886 - Searching for pulsars using the CSIRO Pulsar Data Archive
Out of the 2330 radio pulsars currently known, 1282 were discovered by the Parkes radio telescope. Numerous exciting objects such as the first double pulsar, the fast radio bursts and rotating radio transients were discovered in these surveys. We are now reprocessing the surveys with modern algorithms and expect to find even more exciting objects... more. We require further observing time to confirm that our new discoveries really are pulsars. less
