Abstract:

The USA Unconventional Stellar Aspect experiment was launched in February of 1999 and operated for approximately 18 months. Group K at SLAC Stanford Linear Accelerator Center participated in this experiment along with the Naval Research Laboratory NRL. I discuss the USA experiment and the data accumulated along with some of the results obtained from the observations of such objects as the extragalactic BL Lac object 1ES195965, the Black Hole Candidate BHC XTE J1118480, and the eccentric X-ray binary system Circinus X-1.
