24 September 2012Upper computer software design for active optics
China has joined the international global network SONG project and will build one 1-meter telescope as one node of
SONG network. This paper shows the upper computer software system design under Linux operating system for active
optics control system of Chinese SONG telescope. The upper computer software developed in this paper under Linux OS
has three functions: detection of S-H wavefront, calculation of mirror correction force and communication with the
controller of hardware. We will introduce the three modules developed under Linux environment: wavefront image
processing module, communication module and GUI module.
