Abstract: LINC-NIRVANA is a near-infrared imaging interferometer for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). The fixed geometry of the telescope and the adaptive optics of the instrument put special constraints on the observation and scheduling process. The observation and support software, currently under development at MPIA, is a tool to support an observer in the complex process of preparing and scheduling the observations for LINC-NIRVANA. Our final goal is to create a coherent software that guides a scientific project through all stages of the LINC-NIRVANA observation program preparation to achieve high observation efficiency and scientific results with the instrument.
