Kaji Technology Corporation (“KAJI”) has acquired an order of High-pressure Air Compressor facilities for the pneumatic actuators of the mirror support systems for the large infrared telescope that is to be constructed by the University of Tokyo Atacama Observatory (“TAO”) Project.
The TAO is located at the summit of Co. Chajnantor (5640m altitude) in the Atacama desert in the northern Chile, and is the astronomical observatory at the world highest site. The TAO project aims to uncover the biggest mysteries of the Universe: the birth of galaxies and the origin of planets. Since the TAO site has high clear-sky fraction and extreme low humidity, the TAO telescope can observe infrared light from celestial objects without atmospheric absorption that has been impossible at any other site in the world, and will pioneer new frontiers of observational astronomy.
KAJI will further endeavor to contribute to the TAO project being executed by the University of Tokyo.
