The ANITA (ANtarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna) is a NASA long-duration balloon payload with an array of radio antennas. The primary goal of ANITA is to search for ultra-high energy cosmogenic neutrinos by detecting their impulsive radio signals emitted via the Askaryan effect in the Antarctic ice sheet. Moreover, ANITA is able to detect radio impulses produced from ultra-high energy cosmic-ray showers as result of their emissions via interaction with the geomagnetic field. The ANITA-IV experiment was launched on December 2, 2016, and successfully completed 28 days of flight. We will present the ANITA-IV instrument, flight operation, calibration as well as the status of the data analysis.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
