  • Small Astronomy Satellite 2
    The Small Astronomy Satellite 2, also known also as SAS-2, SAS B or Explorer 48, was a NASA gamma ray telescope.
  • Spektr-RG
    Spektr-RG (Russian for Spectrum + Röntgen + Gamma; also called Spectrum-X-Gamma, SRG, SXG) is an international high-energy astrophysics observatory, which is being built under the leadership of the Russian Space Research Institute (IKI).
  • High Energy Astronomy Observatory 1
    HEAO-1 surveyed the sky in the X-ray portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (0.2 keV - 10 MeV), providing nearly constant monitoring of X-ray sources near the ecliptic poles and more detailed studies of a number of objects by observations lasting 3-6 hours.
  • AGILE (satellite)
    AGILE (Astro‐Rivelatore Gamma a Immagini Leggero) is an X-ray and Gamma ray astronomical satellite of the Italian Space Agency (ASI).
  • Gamma-ray burst
    Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are extremely energetic explosions that have been observed in distant galaxies.
  • Compton Gamma Ray Observatory
    The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) was a space observatory detecting light from 20 keV to 30 GeV in Earth orbit from 1991 to 2000.
  • Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope
    The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (FGST), formerly called the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST), is a space observatory being used to perform gamma-ray astronomy observations from low Earth orbit.
  • High Energy Astronomy Observatory 3
    The last of NASA's three High Energy Astronomy Observatories, HEAO 3 was launched 20 September 1979 on an Atlas-Centaur launch vehicle, into a nearly circular, 43.
  • Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission
    The Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission consists of a robotic spacecraft called Swift, which was launched into orbit on November 20, 2004, at 17:16:00 UTC on a Delta II 7320-10C expendable launch vehicle.
  • Gamma (satellite)
    Gamma was a Soviet gamma ray telescope.
  • Granat
    The International Astrophysical Observatory "GRANAT" (usually known as Granat; Russian: Гранат), was a Soviet (later Russian) space observatory developed in collaboration with France, Denmark and Bulgaria.
    INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL) is a currently operational space telescope for observing gamma rays.
  • Explorer 11
    Explorer 11 (also known as S15) was an American Earth-orbital satellite that carried the first space-borne gamma-ray telescope.
  • Space Variable Objects Monitor
    The Space Variable Objects Monitor (SVOM) is a planned small X-ray telescope satellite under development by China National Space Administration (CNSA) and the French Space Agency (CNES), to be launched in 2021.
    A Broadband Imaging X-ray All-sky Survey, or ABRIXAS was a space-based German X-ray telescope.
  • High Energy Transient Explorer
    The High Energy Transient Explorer (abbreviated HETE; also known as Explorer 79) was an American astronomical satellite with international participation (mainly Japan and France).
