TNO and industrial partners are developing a new type of Adaptive Secondaty Mirror (ASM) technology enabling affordable and reliable ASMs for the world’s larger telescopes as well as the telescopes in the 2-4 meter class. To demonstrate this technology, an ASM is being developed for the University of Hawaii’s 2.2-meter telescope.
