Paper Abstract

EMIR (Espectrógrafo Multiobjeto Infrarrojo) is a wide-field, near-infrared, multi-object spectrograph, with image capabilities, which will be located at the Nasmyth focus of GTC (Gran Telescopio Canarias). It will allow observers to obtain many intermediate resolution spectra simultaneously, in the nIR bands Z, J, H, K. A multi-slit mask unit will be used for target acquisition. This paper shows an overview of the EMIR software. Its architecture is distributed with real time features, having in mind to build a reusable, maintainable and inexpensive system. In this paper, we outline the main performances of the current design and some examples already implemented are given.
