Paper Abstract

The efficiency of new generation ground based optical telescopes with large segmented mirrors will depend largely on the solution of the problems in the way of the development of methods and hardware for adaptive mirror control. A methodological approach to conceptual design is given here as well as description and results of the tests of the segmented primary mirror angular position control system, which has been basically developed during construction of the AST-1200 experimental telescope with seven segments primary mirror.
