Abstract
The United Kingdom Infra-Red Telescope (UKIRT) is currently undergoing its first major upgrade since its construction. The upgrades program consists of an adaptive tip-tilt and focus system closed with a CCD system at rates of up to a few hundred hertz, an active primary support system, extensive dome thermal work, and other miscellaneous improvements. This paper outlines how we propose to control the new systems, and how these systems are integrated into the existing telescope control system.
