The ICD SW system team is dedicated to providing controls infrastructure highly critical to SLAC accelerator operations for LCLS, FACET and Test Facilities. The system team also leads an effort in LCLS-II Networking and Computing design, and is responsible for providing support in controls development environment for SLAC AIP projects. SLAC has a large, highly distributed and heterogeneous controls infrastructure with a mixture of various legacy systems for multiple accelerator operations, and yet must be compliant with DOE Cyber Security. The system team strives to tackle such complexity to ensure the mission critical infrastructure is reliable, secure, and scalable. We are determined to understand new requirements from growing demands, perform systematic analysis based on all constrains and interfaces, and deliver sustainable solutions on time and within the operation budget. We are committed to providing top quality user support to address issues and challenges constantly posed by software developers, hardware engineers, and physicists.

This site is only for the system team to document controls infrastructure which includes Networking, Computing, and Controls Infrastructure applications.
