Controls & Data Systems

The TID CDS Division provides the core competencies required to design, develop and deploy the control and data systems for SLAC experimental facilities. Recent investments, partnerships and initiatives have pushed SLAC to the leading edge of data analytics for massive throughput observational and experimental data. This is especially evident in the areas of real-time data reduction and feedback, real-time access to HPC facilities for data analysis and new ML techniques to interpret data faster, enabling efficient operation of the next-generation facilities, and improving accelerator, detector, and facility operations. To this end, our group develops data management capabilities and hardware infrastructure to provide a holistic data processing system which integrates sensors and front end electronics in the experimental area, with on-the-fly data monitoring and data reduction fabric, and with complex and configurable processing capabilities in the data center, onsite and remote
