ATC has long-standing ties with University
College London, and ATC owner, Mark Aston, is an External Associate
of the Optical
Science Laboratory and an Honorary Research Fellow
in the Department of Physics & Astronomy.
This partnership allows the
design and development of large instrumentation for large ground
Mark was involved in introducing the
formal project management environment at OSL that enables instruments
such as the High
Resolution Optical Spectrograph (HROS) to be designed
The unique experience of producing high-value,
research quality instrumentation using commercial management
procedures again reinforces ATC's ability to ensure that unique
projects are implemented within budget and to time.
