27 June 2006 Defining common software for the Thirty Meter Telescope
Author Affiliations +
The software for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) is currently in the specification and design phase. A decision was made early on to provide a common software package that will provide basic infrastructure and services to be used by all project software packages. A roadmap for defining Common Software was written. The first roadmap step of defining what should be included in common software was accomplished by analyzing similar projects. The result was the definition of a reference architecture for end-to-end observatory software systems called the Observatory Software Domain Architecture. This architecture was then used to define the specifications for the TMT common software. This paper describes the roadmap, the reference architecture, and the current definition of TMT common software.
