  • Full-sky Astrometric Mapping Explorer
    FAME is an astrometric satellite designed to determine with unprecedented accuracy the positions, distances, and motions of 40 million stars within our galactic neighborhood. It is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO) and several other institutions.

  • Transit search
    The purpose of is to coordinate and direct a cooperative observational effort which will allow experienced amateur astronomers and small college observatories to discover transiting extrasolar planets.

  • Microvariability and Oscillations os STars
    Detection and characterisation of: (1) acoustic oscillations in Sun-like stars, including very old stars (metal-poor subdwarfs) and magnetic stars (roAp), to probe seismically their structures and ages; (2) reflected light from giant exoplanets closely orbiting Sun-like stars, to reveal their sizes and atmospheric compositions; and (3) turbulent variations in massive evolved (Wolf-Rayet) stars to understand how they add gas to the interstellar medium.
