摘要:

MINERVA-Australis at the University of Southern Queensland's Mount Kent

Observatory is the only southern hemisphere precise radial velocity

facility completely dedicated to follow-up of planets from NASA's

Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS).  We are a collaboration

including Nanjing University and seven insititutions in Australia and

the US.  The array is now fully operational, with five 0.7m telescopes

in place, delivering mass measurements for TESS planets.  I give an

overview and update of operations, and I present our precise radial

velocity results and orbital solutions for several TESS planets.  I also

discuss our longer-term plans for extended mission science, taking

advantage of the unique capabilities of this dedicated observatory.
