Title: EUV sources and transients detected by the ALEXIS Satellite

Because ALEXIS is a spinning satellite, it is an ideal platform with which to study the time variability of the EUV cosmos. The main thrusts of this effort are to (1) detect EUV sources at known and unknown locations, (2) provide notification of transients in near real time to enable immediate follow-up from other observatories, and (3) create a time history of observed sources for comparison with previously published catalogs to aid in determining long duration variability from EUV sources.
