16 September 2004 VLT interferometry in the data flow system
Author Affiliations +
Science interferometry instruments are now available at the Very Large Telescope for observations in service mode; the MID-Infrared interferometry instrument, MIDI, started commissioning and has been opened to observations in 2003 and the AMBER 3-beam instrument shall follow in 2004. The Data Flow System is the VLT end-to-end software system for handling astronomical observations from the initial observation proposal phase through to the acquisition, archiving, processing, and control of the astronomical data. In this paper we present the interferometry specific components of the Data Flow System and the software tools which are used for the VLTI.
