Abstract

In 2000, Korea Astronomy Observatory launched the Near-Earth Object Patrol (NEOPAT) program. NEOPAT has conducted follow-up observations of NEOCP (NEO Confirmation Page) objects and discovered 52 new main-belt asteroids during the observation runs. We initiated collaboration with the Yonsei Survey Telescopes for Astronomical Research (YSTAR) team for NEO search. Wide-field of view, fast read-out time, and fully autonomous data pipeline will enable us to detect and track NEOs with a high efficiency. Scheduled to begin active operations in mid-2001, our survey system is going to be the first network of robotic telescopes for NEO search with automatic access to both hemispheres.
