Brief description

Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are bright, millisecond-duration radio pulses hypothesized to originate at cosmological distances. To date, one FRB has been seen to repeat but their origins remain a puzzling mystery. Some have proposed FRBs come from Crab-like pulsar giant pulses or periods of high activity of distant magnetars. Both mechanisms would generate observable subsequent FRB-like events. In this proposal we directly test this hypothesis by monitoring the fields of two known FRBs to search for repeating pulses that may explain their progenitors. We target two sources with existing multi-wavelength archival images of the field and small DM-derived distances.
