Global VLBI Interfaces
JUMPING JIVE updated tools and methods for the EVN telescopes, with focus on scheduling and monitoring tools by adapting and modernising them so as to continue to adhere to international standards and requirements.
The JUMPING JIVE project focused on modernising old tools used by the VLBI community. This included:
- Setting up a centralized monitoring system for the EVN at JIVE;
- Building pySCHED, a modernised version in Python of the legacy programme SCHED that is used for the scheduling of VLBI networks around the world.
Both new tools have seen a good uptake within the VLBI community in general and the EVN users specifically.
