Integrated modeling of submillimeter radio telescopes

Moraru, Dan LU and Andersen, Torben LU (2002) Workshop On Integrated Modeling of Telescopes In Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering 4757. p.169-173
Abstract
Integrated models are inherently complex and often obscure to any but those who write them. Their usefulness can be greatly enhanced through well-structured, object-oriented design. A robust and computationally efficient Simulink/C++ library of optics, control, finite-element, and visualization routines for modeling radio telescope performance under various operating conditions is being developed and is described. The library is being developed in conjunction with an end-to-end model of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) antennas. The model includes the mechanical structure, optics, servos, and potential laser gyros, and can be used to investigate such issues as tracking performance, compliance with error budgets, wind sensitivity,...

It will also be a good tool for comparison of different antenna designs. (Less)
