  International Concordia Explorer Telescope
  A robotic telescope for continuous wide-field high-precision photometry from the Antarctic

The prime objective of ICE-T is to investigate the combined effects of extra-solar planets, stellar magnetic activity and non-radial pulsations on the structure and evolution of stars, as well as their internal dynamics and dynamo activity. Continuous observing at very high photometric precision is needed to detect planets and to characterize the evolution of stellar surface structures. Our technical goal is to perform a deep variability survey down to V = 22 mag along three representative star fields in the Milky Way.

Stellar activity
Extrasolar planets
More than 100,000 stars monitored
