Abstract
The report outlines the work done by the contractor in documenting and upgrading the Impact Studies Facility's data acquisition software. This software, which is based on National Instruments "Labview" application package, is modular in approach, and allows the building of complex, yet flexible applications for data gathering, manipulation and presentation. For this task the contractor reviewed and became familiar with the existing Labview data-acquisition software package (approximately 27 individual applications) through consultation with the Scientific Authority and study of the software. As far as possible, each component/module and application was upgraded from version 2.2 to version 4.0.1 by first loading it into LabVIEW 3 and then into LabVIEW 4.0.1. Once conversion had been taken as far as possible, all calls to non-data acquisition compatibility VIs were replaced with LabVIEW 4 nativ ecalls, which makes the code easier to deal with for a LabVIEW 4 programmer, and also makes any future conversion to another platform (such as Windows PC) easier. A few applications, especially those which relied on hardware which was not available on the contractor's computer and which is to be replaced by new data acquisition hardware, was not upgraded.
