100 24.09.2014 DOP/DOE Feasibility Study for the Accurate Measurement of Mirror Deformation by Deflectometry

The scope of this Price Inquiry is to place two contracts in parallel for a feasibility study on the subject matter. ESO might decide, at its sole discretion, to place contract(s) for the following phases (design and production of the deflectometer), with one of the companies that have performed the feasibility study.

The scope of work is the direct and simple optical measurement of the deformation of the EELT M1 segment subunit under gravity load.  This will be measured as part of the M1 segment polishing contract and requires a complex metrology setup.  Such metrology has already been demonstrated as part of Phase B, and is built into the EELT costs, but it is a cost driver). Deflectometry is seen as risk mitigation alternative with a high potential for simplification and cost savings in the M1 segment polishing.

The Call for Tenders/Price Inquiry is scheduled to be issued in Q4/2014 to companies in ESO Member States.
