TAROT (Telescope Action Rapide pour les Objets Transitoires - Rapid Action Telescope for Transient Objects)
is a network of two robotic ground based telescopes. The telescopes are fully automated, from the scheduling of
the observation requests to the processing of the data. All the applications use a specific automated processing
pipeline which has been continuously improved. CADOR (Coordination et Analyse des Donnees d'Observatoires
Robotises - Coordination and Data Analysis of Robotic Observatories) is a set of data base servers which manage
TAROT telescopes. CADOR is the prime interface to request new observations from TAROT and to access all
images saved with the possibility to make additional processing and analysis. Tarot and Cador are compliant
with Virtual Observatory standard and protocols.
TAROT (Télescope á Action Rapide pour les Objets Transitoires - Rapid Action Telescope for Transient Objects)
is a network of robotic ground based telescopes. Since 2002, we use them for a survey of artificial objects
(satellites, debris) in the geostationary orbit. The objects are detected, their orbit is computed, and follow-up
observations are planned. We are currently implementing new, more efficient, image processing algorithms in
order to improve the processing speed, the sensitivity, and to decrease the rate of false detections. We present
our new implemented methods, as well as the results obtained.
