The COSETI Observatory

  • The promotion of Optical SETI is a dual-track approach.

    • The basic aim is to redress the imbalance between the amount of research effort devoted to Microwave & Optical SETI. Optical SETI has up to now been the poor step-sister of Microwave SETI.
    • Professional Optical SETI.
      • Large telescopes for detecting laser beacon signals and main data channel with sophisticated signal processing.
      • Very expensive.
    • Amateur Optical SETI.
      • Small telescopes for detecting laser beacon signals only with simple signal processing.
      • Relatively inexpensive.
