The Automated Response Telescope for Gamma-Ray Burst Afterglows
K. Torii, K. Hasuike, H. Tsunemi

We introduce the hardware system and the observational results of the Automated Response Telescope. The current system consists of two 0.35 m telescopes located in Toyonaka, Osaka, Japan.Each telescope is equipped with a filter wheel and optical CCD imager. Once a gamma-ray burst position is reporetd through the GCN (Swift, HETE) or the IBAS (INTEGRAL), automated imagingof the burst location is started within a few minutes. We will present the current operation status, observational results, and future prospects.
