This is a small linux app I'm working on to control the BLSA device, you can find more info on the hardware itself here It uses the com port to control it and the protocol is very well documented and simple to use. Here is an example output from

blsa -cmd sweep_image 950 1500 0.5 10750

The source is still a work in progress, there is almost no error checking and its pretty easy to make it seg fault :)

- Added the -average N option allowing you to repeat the sweeps N times to average the image

- Added the -loop option, this will repeat the cmd endlessly, this is nice when used in conjunction with the sweep_image option. I then use a blsa.html page to endlessly refresh the image.

- Changed how the tp detect functionality works, should work better now.
