SYNOPSIS

This special competition is to enable access by the U.S. community to the 3.67-meter Advanced Electro-Optical System (AEOS) telescope with its sophisticated adaptive optics system for astronomical research. This telescope system is made available for approximately 90 hours for observation in calendar year 2006.

This special competition makes available to the U.S. astronomical community a 3.67-meter telescope with state-of-the-art passive adaptive optics for imaging through atmospheric turbulence. Seven fixed Coude rooms are available for astronomical observations with user-provided instrumentation. Alternatively, scientific observations can be made using the cameras and instruments provided on-site by the Air Force.
