Key Technologies Network

Colin Cunningham

objectives
Objectives
  • WP5.1: Workshops & Roadmapping:
    • Map astronomical science goals onto technologies already available and those requiring further development
    • Identify links to implementation paths and funding sources.
    • Investigate how European cooperation can help make significant advances in these areas.
    • bring together teams to develop proposals for technology development relevant to astronomical telescopes and instrumentation.
  • WP5.2: Information Exchange & Networking:
    • Encourage interactions to develop European capabilities for technology development
      • e-mail newsletters, web-pages including an interactive WIKI site
    • Develop industrial networks using existing frameworks where possible.

future development projects
Future development projects
  • Plans will follow roadmapping
  • Need to influence FP7 programme – is it too late?
  • Must link to international agency funding and priorities eg ESO, ESA

OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

first workshops
First Workshops
  • IR Detectors – with industry
  • Thermal Modelling
  • Particle Physics models for instrument development?

OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

other possible topics
Other possible topics:
  • Large optical devices – gratings, lenses, filters
  • Dimensional Metrology
  • Cryogenics
  • Mechanisms – including cryo
  • Smart Structures
  • Composites
  • Interface between electronics & software, FPGAs – control
  • Systems Engineering
  • Distributed control and integrated systems

websites
Websites
  • Twiki in operation
  • External website requirements not yet defined

future activities
Future activities:
  • Industry Club
    • Seen as important, but needs funding
    • Could get industry and national agencies to fund
  • Knowledge Base
    • We want to help development groups know what knowledge exists in Europe – both research and industrial groups
  • Both activities lower priority – will be started once the network has really become productive

issues for the opticon board
Issues for the Opticon Board
  • What is the scope of Technology in Opticon?
    • Waveband – 0.4 to 100 micron?
    • Ground based and Space
    • What do we mean by Technology
      • Include systems, software, facilities….
  • What should we concentrate on?
    • My bias is technology for ELT instruments
  • What timescale?
    • 5-15 years?
