BlockNormal S5 FirstYear Pass1 Summary

Introduction

The first pass of trigger generation and analysis for the S5 FirstYear data was completed with the AstroBurst pipeline (BlockNormal+CorrPower) pipeline in August, 2007. Detailing of the selection cuts and results on background and MDC data has been completed and is available for review.

Background Data Summary

We detail our results from 100 time-lags on the S5 FirstYear triple-coincidence data on web page S5_FirstYear_Aug07_DataSummary. These include the effect of DataQuality vetoes. Our final background has 5 events over the 100 time-lags.

MDC Simulation Summary

We detail our results on our main MDC simulation set of band-limited white-noise bursts on web page S5_FirstYear_Aug07_MDCSummary. The all-sky detection sensitivity is characterized with an h50 of 2.1 x 10-21 strain/Hz1/2. Following the completion of the S5 FirstYear analysis for BlockNormal
