ULTIMATE-Subaru Tomography Adaptive optics Research experimenT (ULTIMATE-START) is a laser tomography AO project on the Subaru telescope. The project is planned to achieve high Strehl Ratio AO correction in NIR bands, and moderate AO correction in visible bands above 600nm. An asterism of 4 laser guide stars (LGSs) will be launched from the laser launching telescope behind the secondary mirror. The tomography wavefront sensing unit with four 32$imes$32 Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors will be installed behind the current facility LGS AO system, AO188. The deformable mirror of AO188 will be upgraded to a 64$imes$64 element DM. The corrected light will be fed to the optical integral field spectrograph, 3DII, and NIR camera and spectrograph, IRCS, through a beam switching optics for IR-side Nasmyth focus instruments under development. The first light of the laser launching system and wavefront sensing unit is planned in 2021.
