  1. Key Technologies Network Colin Cunningham

  2. 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. OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  3. Activity Summary • Core Working Group set up • First meeting held at SPIE in Glasgow • Second meeting in Grenoble on 13th Oct • Project Manager appointed – also managing JRA5 (Callum Norrie) • Interactive website (Twiki) in operation • Document management • Calendar • Action tracking • Discussion area OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  4. Core team Membership • ColinCunningham (Chair & JRA5) • Norbert Hubin (JRA1) • Philippe Feautrier (JRA2) • Stefan Wagner (JRA3) • Alain Chelli (JRA4) • Filippo Zerbi (JRA6) • Bernhard Brandl (Lieden, Netherlands) • AlanBridger (UK ATC) • Pierre Kern (LOAG, France) • GavinDalton (RAL, UK) • CarlosMartin (IAC, Spain) • Goeran Olofsson (Stockholm, Sweden) • Martin Roth (Potsdam, Germany) OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  5. Associate Team • Preliminary list of members – to be agreed at the next core team meeting • We want to have a good balance: • Countries • Expertise • Industry • Gender! • Want active members who can cycle into core team OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  6. Roadmapping workshop – this Wednesday! OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  7. OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  8. Roadmap Database software • Strateva Technology Roadmap software purchased • Funded by Scottish Enterprise OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  9. 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

  10. First Workshops • IR Detectors – with industry • Thermal Modelling • Particle Physics models for instrument development? OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  11. 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 OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  12. Websites • Twiki in operation • External website requirements not yet defined OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  13. 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 OPTICON Key Technologies Network Grenoble

  14. 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?
