Paper Abstract

Magdalena Ridge Observatory (MRO) Interferometer is a ten telescope optical interferometer array being built on the Magdalena Mountains 20 miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. The interferometer is being designed by collaboration between New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and the University of Cambridge. The science mission and requirements have been finalized which has helped to begin engineering design and development culminating in detailed conceptual designs. Some of the proposed hardware and software implementations are currently being tested in the lab. We present an engineering overview of the conceptual design and the proposed hardware and software implementations.
