Basden, A. G. (2014) 'A real-time simulation facility for astronomical adaptive optics.', Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society., 439 (3). pp. 2854-2862.
In this paper we introduce the concept of real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation for astronomical adaptive optics, and present the case for the requirement for such a facility. This real-time simulation, when linked with an adaptive optics real-time control system, provides an essential tool for the validation, verification and integration of the Extremely Large Telescope real-time control systems prior to commissioning at the telescope. We demonstrate that such a facility is crucial for the success of the future extremely large telescopes.
