Abstract: We describe an efficient implementation of a coherent statistic for continuous gravitational wave searches from neutron stars. The algorithm works by transforming the data taken by a gravitational wave detector from a moving Earth bound frame to one that sits at the Solar System barycenter. Many practical difficulties arise in the implementation of this algorithm, including constraints of small computer memory, discreteness of the data, losses due to interpolation and gaps in real data. This implementation is considerably more efficient than previous implementations of these kinds of searches.
