Abstract
Gamma-ray binaries are variable sources of GeV-to-TeV photons with the peak in their spectral energy distributions above 100 MeV. There are only five Galactic gamma-ray binaries known and the processes which govern particle acceleration, non-thermal emission and the variability patterns are not well understood. We present here for the first time results of the VERITAS binary discovery program at VHE energies and a summary of eleven years of observations of the gamma-ray binary HESS J0632+057. VERITAS has acquired more than 220 hours of observations on HESS J0632+057. The results are discussed in the context of contemporaneous observations with Swift XRT at X-ray energies.
