Detecting "Bursts" by interested ground based observers.

The High Energy Transient Explorer is a small scientific satellite designed to detect and localize gamma-ray bursts. The coordinates of GRBs detected by HETE are distributed to interested ground-based observers within seconds of burst detection, thereby allowing detailed observations of the initial phases of GRBs.
