A wide-field adaptive optics system based on an adaptive secondary mirror (ASM) is one of a future plan for the next-generation Subaru adaptive optics system. The main application of ASM based AO will be a ground-layer adaptive optics (GLAO) with field-of-view larger than 10 arc minutes. The high Strehl-ratio of on-source correction by high-order ASM (expected to be about 1000) and the reduction of emissivity are also attractive points. In this paper, we report a preliminary result of simulations for the these applications of ASM to study conceptual design of the next-generation wide-field Subaru adaptive optics.
