Abstract

The Mars Odyssey spacecraft carries two experiments that are capable of detecting cosmic gamma-ray bursts and soft gamma repeaters. Since 2001 April they have detected over 275 bursts and, in conjunction with the other spacecraft of the interplanetary network, localized many of them rapidly and precisely enough to allow sensitive multiwavelength counterpart searches. We present the Mars Odyssey mission and describe the burst capabilities of the two experiments in detail. We explain how the spacecraft timing and ephemeris have been verified in-flight using bursts from objects whose precise positions are known by other means. Finally, we show several examples of localizations and discuss future plans for the Odyssey mission and the network as a whole.
