This module provides command line tools for operating Transient Array Radio Telescope (TART). These tools are

  • tart_calibrate
  • tart_calibration_data
  • tart_download_antenna_positions
  • tart_upload_antenna_positions
  • tart_get_archive_data
  • tart_download_data
  • tart_download_gains
  • tart_image
  • tart_upload_gains
  • tart_set_mode
  • tart_vis2json

To generate an image from a telescope, try the following command which should display the current view from a telescope on top of Signal-Hill near Dunedin New Zealand.

tart_image --api --display
