[84.04] CONCAM Limits on Pre-Trigger and Prompt Optical Emission from GRBs

The CONCAM Global Network of fisheye night sky camera continues to be sensitive to and set limits on bright pre-trigger and prompt optical emission from GRBs. Each of the currently deployed six CONCAMs are sensitive to about visual magnitude 6, but their wide fields and continuous operations give them a unique window for studying intrinsically transient phenomena such as GRBs. We present the latest results of ongoing searches and analyses, providing updated observational time/flux constraints on GRB afterglow behavior. The CONCAM project was made possible, in part, by grants from the National Science Foundation.
