ITER is the most complex science project in human history, designed to demonstrate the scientific and technological feasibility of fusion power.

EPICS Control System Upgrade for PANDA

/
“Never change a running system!” is a piece of wisdom that is as true as it is incomplete, because one can equally add: “But don’t forget to change it before it stops running!” Eventually, every running system reaches a point when you start wondering if it is maybe time to replace it before it stops being a running system. The control system used in PANDA found itself in just this situation. This is how they got a new control system.

An Open Source Control System Framework for ALMA: How ESO and Cosylab Shared a Mission

/
As a large international collaboration, the ALMA telescope project envisioned a standardization of the control infrastructure to ensure a manageable integration of all subsystems. Together with ESO, Cosylab played a valuable role in building the right control system framework, and provided expert support to achieve the high level of harmonization of the system control that ESO was aiming for. ALMA’s breakthrough astronomy research vouches for its success.
