Young, J., Naylor, T., Brake, M., Fisher, M., Seneta, E., Kunst, P., Pepe, F., & et al. (2018). Design and integration of the HARPS3 software system. Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, 10707 https://doi.org/10.1117/12.2312830
We present the design of the HARPS3 software system-A distributed, event-driven control system for robotic operation of the HARPS3 spectrograph at the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT). We also describe our approach to integrating the control software components incrementally at various stages of development, using a simulation framework. HARPS3 will be a high resolution (R = 115, 000) echelle spectrograph operating at wavelengths from 380 nm to 690 nm, with a design based on the successful HARPS and HARPS-N instruments. It is being built as part of the Terra Hunting Experiment (THE)-A planned 10 year radial velocity measurement programme to discover Earth-like exoplanets around Sun-like stars.
