Abstract

We are at the dawn of making the first detection of gravitational waves (GWs). The advanced LIGO and VIRGO detectors are funded and are under construction with a promise of a few of detections a year. A larger GW network is forming with the KA-GRA detector in Japan partially funded and LIGO-India on the near horizon. A low-latency search pipeline is crucial for enabling follow-up electromagnetic observation when a gravitational-wave signal is detected. In this paper, we discuss the benefit for a larger network that includes AIGO - a GW detector at the southern hemisphere for low-latency detections of gravitaional waves. The status of current low-latency search pipelines for GWs from compact binary coalescence will be presented.
