Paper Abstract

Efficient image-based procedures have been developed for both tilt and piston alignment of the mirror elements of large segmented telescopes. Details of the algorithms and their implementation are described, and results are presented for both computer simulations and for laboratory experiments. The techniques are especially intended for space-based systems, but means are discussed for applying them to ground-based telescopes as well.
