28 July 2014 The E-ELT instrument roadmap: a status report
Author Affiliations +
We present the status of the instrumentation programme for the European Extremely Large Telescope. The instrumentation planning is governed by the E-ELT Instrument Roadmap, which synthesises the scientific, technical and managerial influences on the instrument programme into a staged development plan. Preparations for the start of the design and build phases of the first light instruments and their adaptive optics systems are well underway and are summarised here. In parallel, the process for development of the next three instruments has begun. Recent work on the instrument interface to the telescope is described.
