Paper Abstract

The control system for the 45 m radio telescope and the millimeter array at the Nobeyama Radio Observatory, which has been used since 1982, has a centralized structure based on an IBM compatible mainframe. However, due to developments of new instruments for these telescopes, the upgrading of the telescope control system has been started. To provide better availability and flexibility, the new control software is completely distributed, being based on LANs interconnecting workstations and personal computers. The new system is functionally divided into three levels: console (first layer), followed by supervisor and data archiver (second layer), and by local controllers for each device (third layer).
