jINDI is a project of cross platform observatory control software based on INDI protocol. The aim is to build the system which will differ from other available solutions by a number of ways:
INDI (Instrument Neutral Distributed Interface) is a distributed control protocol designed by by Elwood C. Downey to operate astronomical instrumentation. It is used typically by scientific grade software on unix operation systems like Linux or Apple MacOS X but with jINDI project it will be available soon for any operating system which can host JavaFX 2.2 platform including MS Windows, Apple MacOS X and Linux.
ASCOM (Astronomy Common Object Model) is a platform and de-facto standard for vendor and programming language independent communication between astronomy software and astronomical instruments on Windows computers.
