The University of Hawaii 2.2-meter telescope is located on the Island of Hawaii near the summit of Mauna Kea.

Azimuth Shutter

Uni-Systems Engineering partnered with M3 Engineering to perform a field report and produce design upgrades for an electric motor retrofit of the Hawaii 88 Telescope Observatory mechanisms. Both the azimuth drive and shutter drive were studied, and a recommendations report with design drawings was produced.
