7 February 2003 Operational Issues for PARSEC, the VLT Laser
Author Affiliations +
One of the critical design drivers for the PARSEC laser was that by the time it is integrated into the VLT Laser Guide Star Facility in 2003 it should be able to run remotely without any hands-on tuning for a period of at least one week. In this contribution we describe some of the methods we have employed to achieve this and take a brief look at the proposed operating procedure.
