    Abstract

    In order to search for radio bursts in radio transient objects, we have developed an automatic radio burst search system. The system is being used at Nasu Pulsar Observatory of Waseda University in JiyuGakuen Nasu Farm, 160 km north of Tokyo. The drift-scan fringe data from four different declinations are simultaneously obtained with an eight-element interferometer. Using the automatic radio burst search system, some radio transients were detected. Here we discuss its fringe-finding algorithms and the application in burst search observations. The application is similar to that of the blink comparator in optical telescopes to search for novae.
