Software Progress Report - December 2010

During december 2010 we have started to update the AO Supervisor software and calibration files based on (and in preparation for) tests in the Solar Tower lab using the second unit. We are being very careful to maintain compatibility with the FLAO #1. All the modifications tested at the telescope (both for code and for calibration data) have been merged into the main development source tree.

AO Supervisor

  • Small bugs fixed in AOApp library and in Python interfaces
  • Improved logging for Arbitrators
  • Small improvements in diagnostic procedures (better logging and some bugs fixed)
  • Some enhancements in configuration file paths

AdSec Software

  • Added calibration files for unit 672b
  • Improved logging from IDL procedures
  • Added some utilities to analyze accelerometer data
  • Some bugs fixed in lower level routines

WFS Software

  • Added calibration files for W1 (tower lab unit)
  • Some enhancements to command implementation and to some lower level procedures
  • Upgraded calibration procedures
  • Several enhancements to engineering GUI's


  • Small improvements in aoslib (more checks when sending commands to AOS)
  • Some cleanup in the code


  • The management of external software packages (a.k.a. contrib) has been improved
  • Small enhancements to various test programs
  • Fixed a bug in FSM editor code
  • Some enhancements to Makefile in the contrib section
