[16.08] Recent Rapid Localizations with the HETE-2 Soft X-Ray Camera

We present results from the HETE-2 Soft X-ray Camera, including the localizations of the optically dark dark candidates GRB020819 and GRB030115. The latter GRB was localized within 84 minutes of the burst, to within an arcminute of a fading IR source. The SXC is capable of producing subarcminute localizations in real time, and we will discuss recent progress in realizing this goal.
