Abstract

REM (Rapid Eye Mount) is a fully robotized fast slewing telescope equipped with a high throughput Near InfraRed (Z′, J, H, K′) camera (REMIR) and an optical slitless spectrograph (ROSS). A dedicated software for data reduction and software (AQuA) has been developed to extract scientific information from REM images without any human intervent. REM is installed in La Silla (Chile) and dedicated to detect and study the prompt optical/IR afterglow of Gamma Ray Bursts with the ambitious project of discovering objects at extremely high redshift. The synergy between REMIR camera and ROSS makes REM a powerful observing tool for any kind of fast transient phenomena.
