Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) currently under construction in Hawaii. Cyro-NIRSP is a near- and thermal- IR imager and spectrograph operating in a cryogenic environment. It will be used to study the faint solar coronal magnetic field across a large field-of-view. Such a complex and precise instrument demands equal requirements from the control system. The control system must handle the many sub-components (e.g. cameras, polarimeter, mirrors) and bring them all together to manage the setup, timings, synchronization, real time motion and overall monitoring. It is built within the pre-defined DKIST software framework, which provides consistency across all instruments. This paper will discuss how such a control system has been achieved for the Cryo-NIRSP instrument detailing some of the challenges that were overcome relating to the synchronization of specific components and the complex inter-dependencies between configurables. It will also touch on the data processing and visualization software development for the end-to-end functioning of the instrument.
