Paper Abstract

Remote observing with Caltech's millimeter wave array at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO) is being extended to use the graphical capabilities commonly available on computers today. To allow the instrument to be clearly presented to the user, a rich interface has been developed that combines the use of color highlights, graphical representation of data, and audio. Java and internet protocols are used to extend this interface across the Web to provide remote access. Compression techniques are used to enable use over low bandwidth links. This paper presents the design goals, implementation details, and current status of this effort with emphasis on the monitoring of the array.
