21 Observatory Control - Hardware Project based on microprocessor PSoC from Cypress Serial port control, protocol based Controls: –12 generic switches (10A, 250V) –4 on/off contacts (rolloff closed/opened, etc) –4 analog inputs (temperature, humidity, rain sensor, etc)

22 Observatory Control – Software Microsoft.NET library (DLL) with COM (ActiveX) and.NET interface Developed in C# Event based or Pooled control

27 Observatory Control - Hardware LCD Display (for debugging) Humidity Sensor Serial Port PSoC Microcontroller Programming/Power (for debugging) Potenciometer (analog simmulation) Temperature Sensor LEDs (load switch simmulation) Switch (contact simmulation)

28 TAO – Tools for Automated Observers Astrometry of solar system objects (including confirmation of new NEO candidates listed on the NEO Confirmation Page and follow-up and recovery of minor planets and comets) Searches for new solar system objects Photometry of minor planets, comets, variable stars, etc. Supernova searches Nova searches Follow-up of Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs)

29 System requirements ACP + Maxim + Pinpoint The Sky + CCDSoft + Orchestrate The author can develop a special version of TAO image acquisition script for another set of programs

30 Initializing TAO Modeling slew times Measuring camera download times Specifying filter numbers and names Modeling the local horizon Creating user profiles Create Target databases

31 Image cycle time

32 Modeling telescope and dome slew time

33 Modeling the Horizon

34 Creating users Profiles

35 Create Object Databases

36 TAO Components Scheduler Image acquisition Script Tools for creating and maintaining Target databases

37 Creating and Maintaining Target databases

38 Automated ephemeris update Download of new ephemerides for objects whose orbits have been updated since the time when their most recent ephemerides were downloaded. Download of new ephemerides to replace expired ones. Download of ephemerides for newly discovered unusual minor planets and comets.unusual minor planetscomets Download of ephemerides for known unusual minor planets and comets which have become observable since the last update of the moving object database.unusual minor planetscomets Customizing ephemeris update

39 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes Update ephemerides NEOCP monitor Add My objects Add fixed objects

40 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes Configuration Run Targets program Check log file

41 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes Run spreadsheet to read output of Targets program Put targets in priority order

42 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes Configure Scheduler Run scheduler Check Log #1 Check Log #1 Check Log#2

43 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes

44 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes

45 Planning a night run Updating Targets databases Run scheduler Generating Targets for the night Choosing and alocating priority targets Meet observer requests Send target list NO Yes
