From the control room it is possible to act on receivers, antenna movement and sub-reflector movement. In addition it will be possible to interact with the new metrology system (temperature sensors and a little optical telescope installed at the Cassegrain focus) designed for SRT and that will be tested on the Medicina's antenna

The control room is part of the Observatory LAN (at nearly 500 meters from the antenna).
