Abstract
We describe ALICE (Array Limited Infrared Control Environment), the new array control and data acquisition system being developed at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh, for use with instruments at the UK Infrared Telescope (UKIRT) on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The first ALICE systems are described to control Santa Barbara Research Center (SBRC) 256 X 256 indium antimonide arrays to be installed in a near-IR camera (IRCAM) and the IR spectrometer (CGS4) at UKIRT, ALICE, however, may be reconfigured for other sizes and formats of array, its use of parallel processing techniques helping to make it a powerful, flexible and extensible system.
