The NCCS has to support a large number of different kinds of observing
The programs to be supported can be found in the
Requirements & Specifications document.
They will be implemented by the respective astronomers once the NCCS
is designed and the observing language is defined.
Most of the programs should be fairly easy to port once the
observing algorithms have been squeezed out of the astronomers
and written done in a pseudo-code.
Continuum observing will however require considerable restructuring and
rewriting in order to unify all the different programs which exist.
Tasks still to be done :
- GENERATE ALL POSSIBLE OBSERVING ALGORITHMS AS PSEUDO-CODE,
- IMPLEMENT SUITABLE OBSERVING PROGRAMS IN HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE AND/OR C.
