Paper Abstract

The VST active optics software must basically provide the analysis of the image coming from the wavefront sensor (a 10×10 subpupils Shack Hartmann device) and the calculation of primary mirror forces and secondary mirror displacements to correct the intrinsic aberrations of the optical system and the ones originated for thermal or gravity reasons. The software architecture, the simulation code to validate the results and the status of work are here described.
