Paper Abstract

JMaCS is a software intended to facilitate, in soft realtime, the local or remote interactive and programmatic monitoring and control of some distributed target, sucha as an astronmical telescope or telescope network. It is derviced from experimental softaware written for a radar used for observing the Earth's ionosphere, and aims to bring to bear the remote polymorphism afforded by Java RMI (Remote Method Invocation). Teh core software does not provide all these facilities itself, but only a standard way to plug device interfaces into a third-party JMaCS implementation. Itis presented here, together with the JMaCS implementation developed in parallel and a demonstration target, as proof of concept.
