ROTSE-III is a homogeneous worldwide array of 4 robotic telescopes. They were designed to provide optical observations of gamma-ray burst (GRB) afterglows as close as possible to the start of gamma-ray emission. ROTSE-III is fulfilling its potential for GRB science, and provides optical observations for a variety of astrophysical sources in the interim between GRB events. (c) 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
