Abstract
Designing a computer control system for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a complex undertaking, because of both the system's large size and its distributed nature. The controls team is addressing that complexity by adopting the object-oriented programming paradigm, designing reusable software frameworks, and using the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) for distribution. A prototype system for image-based automatic laser alignment has been developed to evaluate and gain experience with CORBA and OOP in a small distributed system. The prototype is also important in the evaluation of alignment concepts, image processing techniques, speed and accuracy of automatic alignment for the NIF, and control hardware for alignment devices. The prototype system has met its initial objectives, and provides a basis for continued development.
