Paper Abstract

INO has designed, assembled and tested the Raven Multi-Object Adaptive Optics demonstrator calibration unit. This sub-system consists in a telescope simulator that will allow aligning Raven's components during its integration, testing its Adaptive Optics performances in the laboratory and at the telescope, and calibrating the Adaptive Optics system by building the interaction matrix and measuring the non-common path aberrations. The system is presented with the challenges that needed to be overcome during the design and integration phases. The system test results are also presented and compared to the model predictions.
