Abstract : Within this paper we present some basic concepts of the software design for a command and control workstation for airborne applications. We report not only on theoretical considerations but also on practical experience, which was gained during the development process of a prototype command and control workstation at DORNIER. Special emphasis is put on software architecture, data structures and tasking with respect to Ada. In order to get a firm basis and to ease understanding the paper starts with a description o the tasks and components of a command and control workstation, which includes a short description of the afore mentioned DORNIER prototype workstation MODOS. The paper concludes with some issues on software ilities .
