The Galactic Emission Mapping Project - GEM DAS

GEM Data Acquisition System (DAS)

The data acquisition system (DAS) takes the receiver signal, pointing (azimuth and elevation), housekeeping, etc. data and sends it to a computer system for recording and later analysis.

Part of the software makes a real time plot of the signal, azimuth, and some housekeeping for monitoring GEM observational performance.

Here is some documentation about the data acquisition system
