Paper Abstract

We present the status of the 1st generation of adaptive optics systems in operation and in construction at ESO. We introduce the 2nd generation of AO facilities planned to be developed in the coming years for the VLT and describe the corresponding enabling technology R&D program. The concept of an Adaptive facility with multi-LGS and a Deformable Secondary at one the VLT Unit Telescope is introduced. Status and roadmap of ESO simulation tools and preliminary concepts for OWL Adaptive Optics as well as preliminary R&D plan are given.
