Résumé :

Convection, Rotation and planetary Transits (CoRoT) is a space mission dedicated to stellar seismology and the search for extrasolar planets. Both scientific programs are based on very high precision photometry and require long, uninterrupted observations. The instrument is based on an afocal telescope and a wide-field camera, consisting of four E2V-4280 CCD devices. This set is mounted on a recurrent platform for insertion in low Earth orbit. The CoRoT satellite has been recently launched for a nominal mission duration of three years.
