It is Tango time: The M&C system for LOFAR2.0 stations

After ASTRON has gathered 10 years of experience with the LOFAR telescope's station M&C system, a reevaluation took place and it was decided that the new hardware for LOFAR2.0 stations also warrants a new M&C system.

The foundation of the LOFAR2.0 station Monitor and Control system (M&C) will be the Tango Controls framework. It allows for an object oriented software architecture which naturally leads to a hierarchical alignment of the software components.

The software will be developed in Python3 with the option to use C++11 where performance issues arise.
