Abstract
PILOT is proposed as a partnership between Australia and Europe to develop a 2.4 m optical/infrared telescope for Dome C, Antarctica. Funding for a detailed designed study is being sought from Australian sources, with a view to commencing construction in early 2008. The current `strawman` design is for an f/10 dual Nasmyth configuration with provision for both a silicon carbide fast tip-tilt secondary mirror for the thermal infrared, and an adaptive secondary mirror to achieve diffraction-limited imaging at wavelengths as short as V-band. © EAS, EDP Sciences 2007.
