Abstract: We evaluate the transit detection capabilities of the STARE experiment in a real observing run. To this end, artificial transits have been added to 480 light curves of stars from STARE data, varying their amplitudes, periods and phases. A matched filter algorithm was then applied for the transit search. Detection probabilities of over 60% can be mantained for transits of 20 mmag depth for periods up to 4 days, with tolerable false alarms counts.
