Paper Abstract

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) is a project with stringent requirements on the control aspects and telemetry capture demands, to command the cadence of the survey process, and to help analyze and discover the systematics of the observing process. For that purpose, the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard has been selected as the communications middleware to distribute information across the entire system. This paper describes the new architecture of the control system and the middleware messaging, for handling the commands and telemetry based on the use of the DDS standard.
