Abstract
We are investigating the desired features of a new control system for the IRAM 30 m telescope, in particular new and improved observing modes for the millimeter wavelength range. Flexible and fast on-the-fly observing for spectral lines as well as continuum will play a central role. On-the- fly can be combined with frequency or wobbler switching, and will support focal-plane array receivers. To combine the goals for a system that is both flexible and easy-to-use, we want to use a feature-rich scripting language, combined with standardized commands or templates for the most common observing modes. Several recent developments within the current control system include ideas and solutions for the new control system; most of these run on Linux subsystems. Information about our plans and ongoing development can be found on the WWW by following links from the IRAM, Granada, home page.
