Abstract:
A real-time discrete-event simulation model is built to emulate the functional operations of the Thaw telescope of the Allegheny Observatory and its attached scientific instrument. The OASIS software system is used to communicate with the simulation model. This simulation model, written in Ada, consists of three major parts. The Command Receiver and the Data Transmitter are software written to service the incoming telecommands and outgoing telemetry, the Command Processor is the actual simulator itself consisting of a Command Retriever, a Scanner, a Parser, a Command Interpreter, and the actual Thaw telescope simulation. The motivation for our simulation model and discussion of design issues are presented in chapters 1 and 2. The details of the model are documented in chapters 3, 4, and 5. The final two chapters include examples, questions, thoughts for future work, and conclusions.
