16 September 2004 Very Large Optical Telescope (VLOT) integrated model enhancements
Author Affiliations +
The integrated modeling tools for Canada's 20-meter telescope model, VLOT, have advanced significantly in the last year. Specifically, the flexibility of the tool and the pre-processing and post-processing functions have been enhanced. Also, closed loop control of the primary mirror and feeding the optical displacements through an adaptive optics tool, have been developed. This paper details the enhancements made to the tool and discusses the future challenges of the integrated modeling team.
