Abstract
The Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT) is a 4.3-meter astronomical research telescope being built in northern Arizona as a partnership between Discovery Communications and Lowell Observatory. We present an overview of the current status of the project software effort, including the iterative development process (including planning, requirements management and traceability, design, code, test, issue tracking, and version control), our experience with management and design techniques and tools the team uses that support the effort, key features of the component-based architectural design, and implementation examples that leverage new LabVIEW-based technologies.
