Paper Abstract

The VIRMOS consortium of French and Italian institutes is building the Visible Multi-Object Spectrograph (VIMOS) and the NIRMOS for the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope. Inside the VIRMOS consortium the Technology Working Group of the Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte is in charge of the design, realization and integration of mechanics, opto-mechanical interfaces, control electronics and low level control software. This paper is an overview on the VIMOS technical project managed by the TWG.
