4 November 1982 Mirror Control System For The University Of California Technical Demonstration Prototype
Author Affiliations +
The University of California's Ten Meter Telescope project is currently working toward a hardware demonstration of the proposed segmented mirror control system. A prototype with a full size morror is being fabricated to prove the hardware and software concepts while providing hands-on experience with full scale equipment fabrication, testing, installation and operation. A brief derivation of the response function of the system is given, utilizing the calculated mechanical behavior of the mirror support with measured wind power spectra as the forcing function. Design parameter values are then established for the mirror control loop. The dynamic measurement and control computer system is described.
