Paper Abstract

Aim of this paper is to present an overview of the conceptual design of the Control Software for the European Solar Telescope (EST), as emerged after the successful Conceptual Design Review held in June 2011 which formally concluded the EST Preliminary Design Study. After a general description of ECS (EST Control Software) architecture end-to-end, from operation concepts and observation preparations to the control of the planned focal plane instruments, the paper focuses on the arrangement devised to date of ECS to cope with the foreseen scientific requirements. EST major subsystems together with the functions to be controlled are eventually detailed and discussed.
