Abstract

The wide-band all-sky monitor (WAM) onboard Suzaku has the largest effective area in 300-5000 keV, and thus very powerful to constrain the E peak and high energy tail of gamma-ray burst prompt emission. Collaboration with GLAST will give us high-quality data of gamma-ray prompt emissions to probe and resolve the emission mechanism and central engine of gamma-ray bursts. Here we report initial results of the WAM and address on the collaboration with GLAST.
