ROTSE

(Robotic Optical Transient Search Experiment)
(automated array of telescopes to uncover and track transients)

ROTSE (for Robotic Optical Transient Search Experiment) is an array of four optical telescopes located around the world, operated by computer following up on reported Gamma-Ray Bursts. While not responding to alerts for GRBs, it Surveys for other Transients.

The original ROTSE (ROTSE-I) was deployed in 1998. A upgrade plan (ROTSE-II) was canceled, and a redesigned upgrade (ROTSE-III) to the current configuration was carried out in 2004. It is designed to respond to alerts of GRBs from other sources, and to start imaging within seconds of receiving the alert.
