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

19.12.2018
As a large international collaboration, the ALMA telescope project envisioned a standardization of the control infrastructure to ensure a manageable integration of all subsystems.
Since its beginnings, the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) ALMA software project has been characterized by a great complexity. 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.
