|Issue Date:||2016||Volume:||Software and Cyberinfrastructure for Astronomy IV||Editors:||Chiozzi, Gianluca; Guzman, Juan C.||Series:||PROCEEDINGS OF SPIE||Number:||9913||First Page:||99133L||Abstract:||The ASTRI mini-array, composed of nine small-size dual mirror (SST-2M) telescopes, has been proposed to be installed at the southern site of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), as a set of preproduction units of the CTA observatory. The ASTRI mini-array is a collaborative and international effort carried out by Italy, Brazil and South Africa and led by the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics, INAF. We present the main features of the current implementation of the Mini-Array Software System (MASS) now in use for the activities of the ASTRI SST-2M telescope prototype located at the INAF observing station on Mt. Etna, Italy and the characteristics that make it a prototype for the CTA control software system. CTA Data Management (CTADATA) and CTA Array Control and Data Acquisition (CTA-ACTL) requirements and guidelines as well as the ASTRI use cases were considered in the MASS design, most of its features are derived from the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array Control software. The MASS will provide a set of tools to manage all onsite operations of the ASTRI mini-array in order to perform the observations specified in the short term schedule (including monitoring and controlling all the hardware components of each telescope and calibration device), to analyze the acquired data online and to store/retrieve all the data products to/from the onsite repository.||Conference Name:||Software and Cyberinfrastructure for Astronomy IV||Conference Place:||Edinburgh, United Kingdom||Conference Date:||26 June - 1 July 2016||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/26292||URL:||https://www.spiedigitallibrary.org/conference-proceedings-of-spie/9913/99133L/The-ASTRI-mini-array-software-system-MASS-implementation--a/10.1117/12.2231294.full?SSO=1||ISSN:||0277-786X||ISBN:||9781510602052||DOI:||10.1117/12.2231294||Bibcode ADS:||2016SPIE.9913E..3LT||Fulltext:||open|
