Paper Abstract

The software designed to monitor and control the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT) was generalized into Ygor, an object oriented framework for control system implementation. Ygor is deployed on the GBT on a variety of platforms, together making up the GBT Monitor and Control system. The design of the Ygor system will be presented along with the design philosophy leading to these design decisions. Implementation details and case studies will be used to illustrate the advantages of this system.
