Abstract

Results from the first 2 years of data from the Taiwanese-American Occultation Survey (TAOS) are presented. Stars have been monitored photometrically at 4 or 5 Hz to search for occultations by small (-3 km) Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs). No statistically significant events were found, allowing us to present an upper bound to the size
