The Advanced Fiber-Optic Echelle (AFOE) is a spectrograph used for
measuring precise stellar radial velocities. Projects include
asteroseismology, cepheid pulsations, delta-scuti seismology and
extrasolar planet detection
Vulcan Camera Project
The Vulcan Camera Project, like the STARE Project, searches for
giant extrasolar planets using a small-aperture telescope to perform
photometry on a wide field of the sky. The project PI,
Dr. Bill Borucki, is also a STARE collaborator.
A special purpose space mission that has been proposed to
NASA Headquarters as a "faster-better-cheaper" method for detecting
extrasolar Earth-size habitable planets, using photometry to look for
transits. Update: Kepler has been
NASA as one of its new Discovery missions and is scheduled for launch
in 2006. STARE Project PI, Dr. Tim Brown, is one of the
Science Working Group members.
The Arizona Search for Planets (ASP) uses photometry to look
for transits of extrasolar planets.
The All Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) is a project in which the final goal
is photometric monitoring of approx. 10^7 stars brighter than 14
magnitude all over the sky.
