Paper Abstract

During 1988 - 1993, Itek Optical Systems developed software for a demonstration program of several critical technologies for adaptive optical systems. The software implements a variety of data acquisition and control functions for an adaptive telescope system with hundreds of degrees of freedom. The completed software contains approximately 250,000 lines of real- time Ada code and was developed using a tailored DoD-STD-2167A methodology. Testing of the optical system was successfully conducted in December 1993. The system-level requirements for this software, the design of the software, the development methodology, and some lessons learned are discussed.
