This document presents the design of a control system for the twin radio telescopes located in the Ny-Å lesund Geodetic Observatory. This system allows using the twin radio telescopes both simultaneously and individually. The goal of the design is to minimize the number of control devices used by the control system. To carry out this goal, the control system has been implemented by using the software programming infrastructure called ALMA Common Software (ACS) together with the software package for synchronization of Very Large Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) observations called Field System (FS).
