Are you new to WaveTrain?
Have a look at the WaveTrain brochure. To get an idea of what a WaveTrain adaptive optics model looks like, you can navigate the documentation for the Baseline Adaptive Optics and Tracking (BLAT) model. All of the documentation is compiled from the information entered by the model builder as he is building the model. The HTML documentation allows users to traverse the model block diagram in a manner consistent with the actual WaveTrain GUI.
