Paper Abstract

Assembly, Integration, Test and Validation (AIT/V) phases for AO instruments, in laboratory as in the telescope, represent numerous technical challenges. The Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Marseille (LAM) is in charge of the AIT/V preparation and planning for the MOSAIC (ELT-MOS) instrument, from identification of needs, challenges, risks, to defining the optimal AIT strategy for this highly modular and serialized instrument. In this paper, we present the status of this study and describe several AIT/V scenarios as well as a planning for AIT phases in Europe and in Chile. We also show our capabilities, experience and expertise to lead the instrument MOSAIC AIT/V activities.
