The Intense Pulsed Neutron Source (IPNS) at Argonne National Laboratory is a major new useroriented facility which is now coming on line for basic research in neutron scattering and neutron radiation damage. This paper describes the data acquisition system which will handle data acquisition and instrument control for the time-of-flight neutron scattering instruments at IPNS. This discussion covers the scientific and operational requirements for this system, and the system architecture that was chosen to satisfy these requirements. It also provides an overview of the current system implementation including brief descriptions of the hardware and software which have been developed.
