Details on Acronym:   ATLAS
   ATLAS (Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System) Write:<<ATLAS YYaaaa>> Object:Transient  (SIMBAD class: Transient = Transient Event) Note:ATLAS is an asteroid impact early warning system being developed by the University of Hawaii and funded by NASA. It consists of two telescopes, 100 miles apart, which automatically scan the whole sky several times every night looking for moving objects.
ATLAS will provide one day's warning for a 30-kiloton "town killer," a week for a 5-megaton "city killer," and three weeks for a 100-megaton "county killer".
ATLAS also processes the survey data to search for stationary transients, which are reported to the IAU Transit Name Server. These include supernovae, CVs, stellar outbursts, and fast transients such as GRB afterglows.

   ATLAS (Australia Telescope Large Area Survey) Write:<<ATLAS N JHHMMSS.ss+DDMMSS.sA>>
<<ATLAS 3 JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSSC>> N: ∼15000 Object:Radio(cm)  (SIMBAD class: cmRad = Centimetric Radio Source) Note:ATLAS is a deep (∼10 uJy rms) radio survey covering 2 fields around the CDFS-S and ELAIS-S1.
Data Release1 took place in 2006-2008 (Norris et al. 2006AJ....132.2409N and Middelberg et al. 2008AJ....135.1276M), and we plan Data Release 2 (Hales et al., to be submitted early 2012) with about 2500 objects and Data Release 3 (Banfield et al., to be submitted late 2012) with about 15000 objects. See also [NAA2006], [MNC2008].
The N in the acronym is the data relase number - either 2 or 3. We will add suffixes to the source designation to indicate individual components or polarisation properties.
