In RHIC low energy bunched beam cooling experiment, LEReC, a 704 MHz fiber laser is modulated such that when striking a photocathode, it produces corresponding electron bunches which are accelerated and transported to overlap an ion beam bunched at 9 MHz RF frequency The need for precise timing is handled well by the existing infrastructure. A layer of software application called the timing manager has been created to track the LEReC beam concerning the RHIC beam and allow instruments to be fired in real-time units instead of bunch timing or RHIC turns. The manager also automates set-tings of different modes based on the RF frequency and maintains the timing of instrumentation with a beam. A detailed description of the bunch structure and scheme of synchronizing the RF and laser pulses will be discussed in the paper.
