 The Field System (FS) uses new antenna control software which works differently to the old version. The FS now manages all conversion of Ra, Dec coordinates to Az, El, including pointing and refraction corrections before sending the commands to the controller. This means that the System Monitor and HMI displays will show pointing and refraction corrections disabled (because they'​ve already been applied). Otherwise, from the operations perspective,​ the antenna control interface is very similar to before. There are a few things to watch out for though: The Field System (FS) uses new antenna control software which works differently to the old version.
