The Sequencer

Development of this system that provides an interface between the instrument control software and the telescope system, and which will allow script observing have continued. This system is based on shell scripts, and is currently being developed for use with StanCam + FIES.

It was decided to use SOAP instead of CORBA as middle-ware. Currently, performance tests are being made with SOAP to verify that the needed calls can be made in a sufficiently short time. A preliminary draft has been made to define the interface behavior between the different components. A test implementation of a Sequencer enable version of BIAS was made.
