The VERITAS collaboration is developing a system of initially 4 and eventually 7 Cherenkov Telescopes of the 12 m diameter class for high sensitivity gamma-ray astronomy in the >50 GeV energy range. In this contribution we describe the software that controls and monitors the various VERITAS sub-systems. The software uses an object-oriented approach to cope with the complexities that arise from using sub-groups of the 7 VERITAS telescopes to observe several sources at the same time. Inter…

A prototype for the real-time analysis of the Cherenkov Telescope Array
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) observatory will be one of the biggest ground-based very-high-energy (VHE) γ- ray observatory. CTA will achieve a factor of 10 improvement in sensitivity from some
Performance study of a signal‐extraction algorithm using different parallelisation strategies for the Cherenkov Telescope Array's real‐time‐analysis software
A signal‐extraction algorithm pertaining to the Cherenkov Telescope Array's real‐time‐analysis pipeline has been parallelised using SSE, POSIX Threads and CUDA to gain insight into the suitability and performance of each platform.
