Axel Suite is a series of Windows applications providing functionalities for Navigator project (Quantum Accelerometer) at The Centre for Cold Matter, Imperial College London.

The whole suite has been written by Teodor Krastev using C#, WPF framework user interface, Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition and Measurement Studio of National Instruments.

Axel Probe is designed as simulator of MotMaster2 including the navigator experiment. The main purpose is to test Axel Hub for communication, logging, visualizing and data processing abilities.
Axel Probe is designed as simulator of MotMaster2 application including the quantum (MOT) accelerometer. The main purpose is to test Axel Hub for communication, logging, visualizing and data processing abilities.

The software provides:

\- The simulation starts with generation of an acceleration pattern (repeatable). Then Axel Probe would simulate a signal which would come out of MotMaster2 and navigator experiment and send that signal to Axel Hub

\- In case of active feedback of Raman phase in order to follow the position of a fringe (from the atomic interferometer), Axel Probe will take into account the fed back Raman phase when the signal is simulated. For example - the PID algorithm could be tested and optimized that way.
