Abstract
All the major components of the United Kingdom Infra-Red Telescope (UKIRT) Upgrades program are now in place. The thrust of the program has shifted to developing the new telescope capabilities so that performance is maintained under real observing conditions. This paper presents an overview of the current state of affairs and focuses on how we have implemented the secondary mirror and fast guide systems and how we control the active primary mirror system to minimize the telescope aberrations.
