Author Affiliations +
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.
