1 1 A Problem of Time and Telescopes By: Tyler Yoshiyama Home Institution: UH Hilo Mentor: Ross Matoi

2 2 Just the Wrong Time? AEOS pointed at Jupiter last week. Yesterday it failed to point at Jupiter. Today it points at Jupiter again.

3 3 The Current Hardware GUI (OBJECT) GPS (TIME) IMAGE MOUNT CONTROL (COMPUTES LOCATION OF OBJECTS) TELESCOPE (LOOKS AT OBJECTS)

4 4 My Project Design a system to input any time into the Image Mount Control (IMC) Independent of the IMC Doesn’t change code in IMC Tricks telescope

5 5 GPS The Time Setting System Linux PC Timer Card C Code TCL/TK GUI Networking Feature IMC GUI IMC TELESCOPE MY SYSTEM OTHER COMPUTERS

6 6 The Coding Language Tool Command Language ToolKit

7 7 Network Uses User Datagram Packets (UDP) to send data UDP is fast but doesn’t check for errors

8 8

9 9 The Roadblocks Had to learn to program in new environment Had to learn TCL/TK Driver didn’t compile initially Managed to debug problem by adding one line of code

10 10 Results C program communicates with GUI and timer card Time can be changed via GUI Able to send and receive information from another computer

11 11 Acknowledgements Akamai Internship Scott Lynne Lani Everyone else in the program Textron Ross Matoi Don Ruffato Nathan Kimura Everyone at Textron for being helpful and supportive The Maui Akamai Internship Program is funded by the CfAO through NSF Science and Technology Center grant (#AST ) and by grants to the Akamai Workforce Initiative from the NSF & AFOSR (both administered by NSF, #AST ) and from the University of Hawaii
