Paper Abstract

The Ohio State Instrument Control and IMage ACquisition System, ICIMACS, is the computer hardware and software used by all instruments developed by the Imaging Science Laboratory (ISL) to control the detector, pre-process data, record image data on a separate computer system for data reduction and analysis, generate real time data display, control the mechanisms within an instrument, interface with the telescope controller, connect to a user interface, and perform engineering functions such as temperature or pressure logging. ICIMACS has now been used on 12 different instruments and is herein described as applied to 'MOSAIC' the near IR imager/spectrometer in use on the Kitt Peak 2.1 and 4 meter telescopes and on the MDM 2.4 and 1.3 meter telescopes.
