Paper Abstract

We describe the current activity at ESO on Curvature Adaptive Optics Systems. The strategy, aimed at implementing several system via a cloning process, will allow faster production time,lower costs and better maintenance. Curvature systems fulfill the performance requirements for NIR spectroscopy and interferometry at the VLT, for which AO is requested. This development and the systems described are complementary to the foreseen ESO high NIR Strehl Ratio Ao system, NAOS in combination with the camera CONICA.
