Instrument control software requirement specification for Extremely Large Telescopes

Young, Peter; Kiekebusch, Mario J; Chiozzi, Gianluca


Engineers in several observatories are now designing the next generation of optical telescopes, the Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT). These are very complex machines that will host sophisticated astronomical instruments to be used for a wide range of scientific studies. In order to carry out scientific observations, a software infrastructure is required to orchestrate the control of the multiple subsystems and functions. This paper will focus on describing the considerations, strategies and...[Show more]
