The India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO), a mega-science project of our nation, aims to study neutrino oscillations using a 50 kiloton Iron Calorimeter with (ICAL) about 30,000 Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) as active detector elements and around 3.6 million electronic channels. A prototype has already been built and working at TIFR. The TIFR-INO group has developed a range of customized applications for simulations, data acquisition and data analysis, in the process of which we have gained an expertise in developing and designing software tools for a modern large scale experiment. No commercial products were used in the development of our software applications.
I will explain the tools that we have used for our software development, the programming models that we have used and an overview of the tools that we have developed.
