This is a progress report on the development of the tip-tilt secondary mirror for the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The concept-- with emphasis on the electromechanical and optomechanical design--was published in an earlier paper. The reader is kindly requested to refer to the background information given there. Here, we present the electronics, system control and data handling considerations along with updated design drawings of the mirror and the combined piezoelectric/hexapod mirror mounts.
