The INTEGRAL Gamma-Ray Sky after 1000 days in orbit


This paper will review the main astrophysical results obtained in the field of high energy Galactic sources with the INTEGRAL/IBIS Gamma-ray Imager (Ubertini et al. 2003) on-board INTEGRAL (Winkler et al. 2003), the ESA space Observatory successfully launched the 17th October 2002 from Baikonur with a Proton vehicle. In view of the high sensitivity of the two gamma ray instruments IBIS and SPI and their capability to provide at the same time image, spectra and time profiles of all the sources in their wide field of view, a key project was approved as “Core Programme” to deeply observe the Galactic Centre (GCDE) and to exploit regular scans of the whole Galaxy Plane. The major results obtained in terms of classes of high energy emitters are shortly outlined.
