Abstract
The ANtarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) long-duration balloon experiment flies an interferometric radio array over Antarctica with a primary goal of detecting impulsive Askaryan radio emission from ultra-high-energy neutrinos interacting in the ice sheet. The third and fourth ANITA flights were completed in January 2015 and December 2016, respectively, obtaining the most stringent limits on the diffuse ultra-high-energy neutrino flux above 10$^{19.5}$ eV to date. We also discuss ongoing analyses and the proposed Payload for Ultrahigh Energy Observations (PUEO), the successor to the ANITA program. PUEO's larger number of antennas and improved trigger would significantly improve sensitivity compared to ANITA-IV.
