Author(s): Anna M. Moore

Paper Abstract

The Advanced Instrumentation and Technology Centre (AITC) is a leading technology innovator and instrument builder in Australia for both space and ground based telescopes. The centre is the technology wing of the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University, and has over one hundred years of history in delivering forefront astronomical instrumentation for the national and international community, including NIFS and GSAOI for Gemini Observatory. We present a summary of the ground and space based instrumentation programs under development at the AITC as well as paradigm shifting technology developments underway together with industry and academia.
