KAIRA operates the standard LOFAR station control software. In addition, an extensive suite of utilities has been created by McKay et al., specifically for KAIRA operations, as listed below. KAIRA software is being actively developed, with improvements, fixes and new features being added on a regular basis.

Software list

The following is the current KAIRA software suite, being run at the KAIRA data archive in Tromsø. Additionally, some of these software programmes are run elsewhere, as well as on the KAIRA station itself. The list shows the version number and the date of the most recent software update. Some packages are listed, but without versions or dates. This is because they have not yet been ported to support the new automated version control system.
