Manufacturing of Robotic Wide Field Telescope "MASTER"
master.complex.telescope@gmail.com

 

"MASTER" company produces the unique  fully robotic optical observatory, capable of the sky survey and reduction without human intervention, identifying all tens-hundred thousands stars at every image and detecting all new moving and stationary objects with their characteristics   in real time (1-2 min after CCD readout).

 

The MASTER systems are an astronomical tool of a new generation, created on the basis of 20 years of experience with MASTER Global robotic telescopes, known for their discoveries of thousands of new objects, including the independent discovery of a new astronomical phenomenon - Kilonova (2017, Nature) - at the neutron stars merging, as well as the discovery of the polarization of optical emission of gamma-ray bursts (2016, Nature).

"MASTER" is a fast, twin, colored (BVRI) and polarizing wide-field telescope robot with its own real-time detection system of  new objects. It means that 1-2 minutes after reading the CCD cameras, you have complete astrometric and photometric information about tens-hundred of thousands of objects on each frame with access to archive photometry and images and with access to known public databases. This software will give you possibility to discover optical transients, including comets and potentially hazardous asteroids.

 

 

 

Manufacturing of Robotic Wide Field Telescope Complexes. 

 We offer fully robotized «turnkey» observatories of «MASTER» system in various modifications which include:
- optical part (telescopes themselves);
- electronic part (image acquisition);
- mechanical part (mount, dome, housing);
- computing facilities ("hard");
- programming computational tools ("soft").

Robotic wide field optical complex «MASTER» is capable of working both in autonomous mode and in manual control mode using the world-wide web capabilities.
Computer memory of the complex contains all known data about the celestial objects (stars, galaxies, minor planets, supernovae, artificial satellites and space debris). The system is continuously updating the catalog of known objects via internet.

The software allows real-time image acquisition and processing, identifying objects by types and automatically upload the information to the Databases accessible by the remote user on the WWW.
