Changing the future
Advanced Technology Center
Look beyond the horizon
The Advanced Technology Center supports research activities at NAOJ by providing technology and support for instruments to observe the Universe.
We conduct research and development for both basic and applied technologies to support the telescopes and instruments currently operated by NAOJ,as well as for technologies intended for future projects.
We also promote joint research activities with other institutes and support their development of new instruments.
Astronomical instrument development can be divided into four categories.
ATC pursues these activities while taking a long-term, sustainable perspective.
