13 December 2002 SOAR TCS: From Prototype to Implementation
Author Affiliations +
The SOAR Telescope is in the final phases of construction. Software development is progressing well, in accordance with installation of the telescope subsystems. Our original strategy, explored during the prototype phase, has been maintained and improved, resulting in a software package of great flexibility. This paper describes the implementation details that have proved to be most useful for the development of the SOAR TCS.
