Abstract: Results from the first two years of data from the Taiwanese-AmericanOccultation Survey TAOS are presented. Stars have been monitoredphotometrically at 4 Hz or 5 Hz to search for occultations by small ~3 kmKuiper Belt Objects KBOs. No statistically significant events were found,allowing us to present an upper bound to the size distribution of KBOs withdiameters 0.5 km < D < 28 km.
