2 06 April 2009 LBT Q Eng/SW Review 2 Highlights Dynamic Balance Dynamic Balance Development continues as time allows. Development continues as time allows. Code now supports a preliminary 'simulation mode'. Code now supports a preliminary 'simulation mode'. Functions in a similar manner to other OSS components. Functions in a similar manner to other OSS components. Not yet complete – other parts of the code must still be added. Not yet complete – other parts of the code must still be added. Not yet tested on the mountain. Not yet tested on the mountain. All reflective memory variables have been defined. All reflective memory variables have been defined. Thanks to Victor for helping define the naming scheme for the tanks, rather than using #1, #2, #3, etc...

All data exported from the MCSPU will be stored in ref. memory. Subsystem code is complete, although untested. Subsystem code is complete, although untested. GUI code is still at a very early stage of development. GUI code is still at a very early stage of development.

3 06 April 2009 LBT Q Eng/SW Review 3 Highlights Secondary Mirror Secondary Mirror Movement Tests performed. Movement Tests performed. Basic movement tests were successful. Basic movement tests were successful. Move-0n-Sphere still needs work. Move-0n-Sphere still needs work. 'Initialization' bug addressed. 'Initialization' bug addressed. Mirror could not be re-initialized once the brake was applied after its first initialization. Mirror could not be re-initialized once the brake was applied after its first initialization. The error was found in the subsystem code, which was not written to allow a transition from 'ready' back to 'standby' properly. The error was found in the subsystem code, which was not written to allow a transition from 'ready' back to 'standby' properly. Code has been tested on the mountain and now works properly. Code has been tested on the mountain and now works properly.

4 06 April 2009 LBT Q Eng/SW Review 4 Highlights Tertiary Mirror Tertiary Mirror Now supports focal station adjustment/offsetting. Now supports focal station adjustment/offsetting. Can be performed with or without selector motion. Can be performed with or without selector motion. Motion is now 'locked out' until the brake is in a known configuration. Motion is now 'locked out' until the brake is in a known configuration. More detailed error messages and information have been added to help debug problems as/if they occur. More detailed error messages and information have been added to help debug problems as/if they occur. New variables added to reflective memory. New variables added to reflective memory. Current focal station name. Current focal station name. Current relative offset in mm from the current focal station. Current relative offset in mm from the current focal station. Focal Stations can now be set using the OSSGUI. Focal Stations can now be set using the OSSGUI. Selection is by focal station name. Selection is by focal station name. Uses positions as defined in OSS configuration file. Uses positions as defined in OSS configuration file. Preliminary motion tests were successful. Preliminary motion tests were successful.
