ISPI is operated through a Graphical User Interface, allowing the user to control the array and the filter mechanism. Through the GUI a limited set of telescope control functions is accessible, enabling the user to perform small off sets and to set the telescope focus. Telemetry of ISPI is also made available through the GUI. The ISPI GUI is an ARCview application, which allows the user to control both the instrument (array control & filter mechanisms) as well as some limited telescope , such as small off sets and telescope focus.
