Custom Software and Systems for Astronomy, Space and Experimental Physics
Norbert Fiebig Astrotechnik is committed to development of custom software and systems for astronomical telescopes, instruments and cameras, as well as software for space applications and experimental physics.
The ASTRO.control concept provides an architecture and platform for development of control systems in astronomy and experimental physics. The system is based on robust industrial PC hardware for harsh environments, a tailored Linux distribution, being optimized for control applications, many device drivers available out of the box, a software infrastructure for control and real-time applications in C++ and specific protocols for communication between controller computers and operator workstations. This platform enables custom control applications to be developed efficiently and in a time-saving way.
The Remote Camera Server is an application built on this platform and available as a product.
