Investigates the special constraints imposed on the design of large instruments by the Antarctic environment. Studies optimisation of optical /IR instrument, robotization of telescopes, focal instruments, and mechanical-optical configurations to match and take full benefit of polar conditions as well as key astrophysical questions identified by NA5.
