SICS is written in C by Mark Koennecke at Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). It has a Tcl interpreter. An adapted version of SICS is used as the low-level control system for the OPAL Neutron Beam Instruments at Bragg Institute, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO). I developed a Java adapter (using Java for JSON parsing) for interaction with ANSTO's version of SICS via telnet, which optionally uses JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) for data and command transfer.
