A new GATS telescope is under development: PST3

GATS telescopes

The Global Astrophysical Telescope System (GATS) project is primarily intended for stellar medium-high resolution spectroscopy with a global network of robotic telescopes. Our first telescope - PST1 - is in operation since August 2007 at Borowiec Astrogeodynamic Observatory near Poznań in Poland. Our second telescope - RBT/PST2 - is in operation since autumn 2013 at Winer Observatory in Arizona.

One of GATS main purposes is the support of BRITE satellite constellation by supplementing its photometry with radial velocity measurements and spectroscopic observations.

Our newest branch of interest is also in satellite and space debris optical tracking and survey in support of European efforts to provide Space Safety for European infrastructure in space and on the ground.

The project is managed by the Institute Astronomical Observatory of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.
