P. Goldoni, on behalf of the REM/ROSS Team, report:

We imaged the field of GRB 060602B (Schady et al., GCN 5200) with 
the 60 cm robotic telescope REM starting at June 3, 01:37:43.5 UT, 
i.e about 1.72 hours after the burst. 

Due to poor meteo conditions at LaSilla a short serie of images 
with the infrared camera were taken with J,H and K filters for 
a total integration time of 100s in each filter.

The analysis of the entire dataset do not show any infrared source 
inside of XRT error circle (Schady et al., GCN 5200; Beardmore et al., 
GCN 5209) down to limiting magnitude of 15.1, 13.2 and 12.2 
respectively (5 sigma uper limit)
