GMT-ASM unit
The AdOptica consortium made by ADS and Microgate has started the final design activty of the GMT Adaptive Secondary Mirrors.
DESI hexapod
ADS has completed the final design of the camera hexapod for the DESI project to be installed onthe Mayall telescope (in picture) at Kitt Peak observatory, AZ. Construction is planned during fall 2016. The payload is a 3.8 ton camera, representing the largest instrument installed on our hexapod systems to date.
ADS is part of the GREST consortium in the framework of European Commission Horizon 2020 programme. We are working with University of Tor Vergata Solar Physics group at the Capacitance-Stabilised Fabry-Perot Development (WP3).
E-ELT M4Unit
The final design and construction activity of the E-ELT M4 deformable mirror has started on 8-July-2015, after the signature of the contract by the AdOptica consortium made by ADS and Microgate (see ESO announcement).
GLT-55C hexapod
ADS has built for ASIAA the Greenland Telescope subreflector positioning and chopping Hexapod. Main feature of this application is the operational temperature as low as -55 C. This hexapod is a 1:1 replacement of the model M-850 by Physik Instrumente.
LATT - Large Aperture (space) Telescope Technology
ADS in a team with CGSMicrogateINAF and INO has delivered a 400mm 19 actuators optical breadboard to demonstrate their technology for deformable (active) mirror system for a space application. The prototype successfully completed functional and environmental tests: thermal, vacuum and launch load cases.
A.D.S. International (ADS) is a private company working in the field of telescope, radiotelescope and astronomical instruments design and production. By working in close co-operation with the Customer we follow our projects from the early feasibility phase down to the construction and field installation. We operate in a industrial facility located near Lecco (Italy), where we have office and laboratory area. We are equipped with up-to-date engineering and design tools and thanks to our mechanical workshop we can prototype directly our products. Moreover, in our own integration and calibration laboratory we perform directly in-house all the most critical steps of the production and qualification process of our instruments, thus assuring the Customer direct and full control of its product.
