Telescope engineering

ADS was responsible for the structural design on the 3.5m Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG) and the preliminary design of the 2 x 8.4m Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). More recently we developed for Cospal Composites a class of radio-telescope reflectors up to 20m diameter, both steel and aluminum ones.

In this framework we have developed tools for the numerical analysis of the optical performances of mirrors/reflectors as function of their deformation. This allows both the optimization of the structural design of the telescopes and the calculation of the corrections to be implemented in the telescope pointing model.
