Abstract
Logicon RDA and Applied Technology Associates have supported PL/LIMI on various imaging experiments during the past years. We are currently supporting an adaptive optics experiment using a 349 actuator deformable mirror. We discuss the system requirements, the design schedule, the final hardware configuration, simulated and actual system performance and planned enhancements. Keywords: Deformable Mirror, Actuator, Electronic system
