Paper Abstract

Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) is building the 1.6 meter New Solar Telescope (NST). The Telescope Control System (TCS) of NST consists of many systems and applications and heterogeneous computer platforms. It is a critical task to design a robust, flexible and reliable - yet not over-complicated - communications for TCS. This paper describes the design and implementation of NST's communication software and protocols. The software is based on the Internet communication engine (Ice) middleware and uses eXtensible Markup Language (XML) for messaging.
