Paper Abstract

This paper describes some of the history and the current design of the Chicago Adaptive Optics System (ChAOS). ChAOS is a facility AO system using a sodium layer laser beacon which is due to be permanently mounted on a 3.5 meter ARC telescope located at Apache Point New Mexico. First light is expected in 1995.
