Paper Abstract

The National Solar Observatory's SOLIS project is building a new solar telescope to replace the existing Vacuum Telescope at Kitt Peak, Arizona. Three new solar instruments will replace existing capabilities and provide new scientific capabilities over the expected 25 year lifetime. The SOLIS instruments are the VSM (Vector SpectroMagnetograph), FDP (Full Disk Patrol), and ISS (Integrated Sunlight Spectrometer). Each provides a unique solar physics science capability for magnetic, image, and spectral data. Part of the challenge for the SOLIS software has been controlling and coordinating these varied instruments to work efficiently in a synoptic observing environment.
