Data acquisition and control software plays a pivotal role in operating advanced test facilities. Development of automated test sequence (ATS) for the operation and control of Semi-Free Jet Test Facility (SFJTF) is presented. This paper explains the hardware used to realize the ATS, discrete (on / off) and continuous (PID) control logics developed to operate the facility in a fully automated mode, safety interlocks used and value added features like on-line monitoring of critical facility parameters, manual override etc,. Typical test results of Mach number, total temperature and total pressure are presented for the test runs conducted with the developed ATS.
