Paper Abstract

Adaptive optics techniques have been proved in both laboratory and field tests to the satisfaction especially of the astronomical and surveillance communities. Such success have sparked interests in other fields, however, to increase efficiency and lower costs new technologies have to be brought to fruition. MEMs are becoming a very important player in this arena. In this paper we describe a portable adaptive optics (AO) system that has been tested in both laboratory and field experiments. Results of these tests will be discussed. Capabilities and shortcomings of this technology will be discussed. A look at future applications and trends will be given.
