Abstract

The ANITA experiment is a balloon-borne radio-pulse detector system designed to measure Ultra-High Energy (UHE) neutrinos interacting in the Antarctic ice utilizing the distinct broadband radio pulse due to the Askaryan effect. The radio-transparent ice serves as a target volume for the production of these pulses. ANITA will have an effective viewing area of over one million km2 of ice at float altitude (∼37 km). A prototype experiment, ANITA-LITE, was flown during the 2003-2004 Austral Summer from Antarctica to perform an impulsive RF background survey of Antarctica. In the process, it has yielded strong constraints on UHE neutrinos, ruling out some theoretical models. We also discuss the expected instrument performance for the first full ANITA flight, planned for a 2006 Austral Summer launch out of McMurdo, Antarctica.
