Abstract
The Arrayed Wide-Angle Camera System (AWACS) is an astronomical wide-field imaging system that utilizes hundreds of replicated small optical units spread across the focal surface of two-mirror telescopes. The AWACS concept is completely different from the traditional monolithic lens-based corrector design and can potentially enable a compact, cost-effective, and high-performance wide-field corrector system for the Extremely Large Telescopes. In this paper, we detail some of the AWACS design features and the results from early laboratory prototype tests.
