Abstract: X-ray (XRB) sources which lie in the Galactic center region are in the field of view of the HETE-2 satellite from May to September, because HETE-2 points generally toward the anti-solar direction. The first XRB event of 2002 detected on May 15 and the last on Sep 3 and total 208 events have been localized with the Wide-field X-ray Monitor (WXM). The sources of these events are GS1826-238, NGC6712, NGC6624, X1728-34, X1916-053, Terzan 5, NGC6652, X1812-121, X1730-333, X1724-307, X1755-338, X1608-522, X1702-429 and NGC6441.
