Paper Abstract

The ASEPS-O Testbed Interferometer control system design presents new challenges as compared to previous generation instruments. Increased instrument complexity due to narrow-angle astrometric observing techniques, longer baselines, and increased user expectations due to computer technology advances all contribute to the size of the effort required to bring the instrument on- line. This paper discusses the design objectives for the computer systems and software for the instrument and how the architecture selected was driven by the objectives and by the resources available; one of the major design objectives was to come up with an architecture that keeps software, network, and communications issues separate from scientific and subsystem implementation issues, making the most effective use of both scientifically- oriented and computer-oriented developers. The paper then presents the architecture that has been implemented in detail.
