External projects who are using SCiMMA
LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA collaboration
  • igwn-alert is a SCIMMA-HOP-based messaging platform used within the LIGO-VIRGO-KAGRA (LVK) collaboration. igwn-alert serves as a bridge between real-time data analysis pipelines and the Gravitational-wave Candidate Event DataBase (GraceDB). It transfers information to and from real-time processes that enable the discovery and public alerting of new gravitational wave candidates.

  • 103 message topics served.

  • 45 active members.

  • 50,000 messages per day.

SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS)
  • SCiMMA developers led a collaboration with the SNEWS project, an international network of neutrino detectors designed to discover the next galactic supernova. SCiMMA and developers collaboratively developed the SNEWS 2.0 app, which extends the hop-client to receive and process alerts from SNEWS's internal data streams hosted on HOPSKOTCH.

  • A summary and demonstration of the collaboration software is availabe on YouTube

  • The collaboration is detailed in publication available on arXiv written by members from both SCiMMA and SNEWS, and is currently under peer-review (as of March 2022)

Astrophysical Multimessenger Observatory Network (AMON)
  • SCiMMA members are involved with the AMON group at the Pennsylvania State University, which began integrating HOPSKOTCH and hop-client into its existing MMA alert processing system. A summary presentation about the integration is available online
