The array control system from Fujitsu was recently deployed for the university of Tokyo that is home to Institute of Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR). The University of Tokyo will be using this array control system in the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). CTA Is a Gamma ray observatory that can register observations with extreme sensitivity that accounts to be 10 times better than all other present day Gamma ray telescopes.
The Cherenkov Telescope Array is result of an international joint research that has members from 33 Nations. The team working on CTA Will carry on observations of gamma rays in cosmos Bike closely looking at the light rays emitted by Cherenkov. The CTA will EMIT light whenever high energy Gamma Rays from across the Cosmos will collide with atmosphere of our planet. These observations that will be made through the Cherenkov Telescope Array will help the research team dig deep into Cosmic Rays and supermassive black holes origin.
The CTA will also help and discovery of a huge variety of highly energized objects present in universe and carry out more researches in the field of dark matter. The array control system from Fujitsu will be placed close to Gamma ray telescope that is located at an altitude of 2200 m inside the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. The Roque de los Muchachos Observatory Is among world’s 5 largest observatories. It is located on the island of La Palma in Spain.
The array control system by Fujitsu will work in sync with Fujitsu storage and servers and will carry out numerous operations in real time. The variety of operations being carried out by array control system will include storage of observation data related to raw gamma rays, Stimulation of arrival direction of these days, as well as close analysis of amount of gamma rays received and sent by it.
With the help of this array control system, Fujitsu will be supporting the observations made by the largest scale Gamma ray telescope in the world. Fujitsu will be making a very important contribution to the Cherenkov Telescope Array’s mission of finding more than 1000 high energy celestial objects. It will also play a key role in understanding origin of universe.
