Near Earth Object research is important not only to solar System science, but for protecting human society from asteroid and comet hazard as well. An integral part of NEO discovery is astrometric follow-up fundamental for precise orbit computation and for the reasonable judging of future close encounters with the Earth including possible impact solutions. The KLENOT project is aimed especially to do so. It ranks among the worlds most prolific professional NEO fol-low-up programs. Here we present KLENOT project and its contribu-tion to follow-up astrometry of PHAs and VIs, our observing strategy as well as our plans for the future
