The Role of Ground-Based Robotic Observatories in Satellite Projects
The long-term light curve of intermediate polar and INTEGRAL source GK Persei (top, source AAVSO) and the recent optical outburst in 2006 (bottom, according to Brat et al. 2006 ). The 2006 outburst appeared only 755 days from last outburst. For previous outbursts in 1992, 1996, 1999, 2002, and 2004, the separation was between 1091 and 1333 days, but before that the outburst separation was roughly 400 d, .
