27 July 2016 On the verification of NFIRAOS algorithms and performance on the HeNOS bench
Author Affiliations +
The laboratory test bench HeNOS is a scaled down version of TMTs first light MCAO instrument NFIRAOS, it is designed to mimic the behavior within the limits of a lab. Its purpose is the verification of the performance predicted through simulations and the demonstration of calibration procedures. The MCAO correction includes LGS effects like spot elongation, tip/tilt uncertainty and sodium layer variations. Tests contain turbulent layer identification with SLODAR, tomographic NCPA correction, matched filter updates, a Pyramid Truth WFS and PSF reconstruction. We discuss the recent advances on the tests and the impact of the results on the control of NFIRAOS.
