Author: Kazutaka Yamaoka

Abstract: The WAM is an all-sky monitor which is sensitive to the 50-5000 keV gamma-rays, utilizing the lateral BGO shield of the Hard X-ray Detector (HXD) onboard Suzaku.

It has been operating well for 7.7 years since the Suzaku launch on July 2005 and providing more than 1000 GRB samples up to present. In this paper, we describe the current status of the Suzaku WAM and introduce latest results from the catalog project.
