Manufacturing of Robotic Wide Field Telescope Complexes  

MASTER II, MASTER II-m and MASTER III

Since 2002 Moscow Association «OPTIKA» is manufacturing wide-field robotic systems «MASTER» (Mobile Astronomical System of Telescopes-Robots) allowing to monitor near-Earth and far space.

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.

Robotic «MASTER II» systems created according to specifications by the scientists from Sternberg Astronomical Institute are currently working near Moscow, on Caucasus, on Urals, near Baykal lake and Blagoveshchensk making the joint robotic network for space monitoring.
